(1) Governmental Forms/Links. It is my firm opinion that you or your HA have no legal right or authority to, except as may be directed or instructed on the form, revise the printed information within the forms created and provided by the Federal government--it is my strong recommendation that you, except as may be directed or instructed on the form, utilize such forms in their original form as issued by the government and that you not revise such forms in any manner except as may be directed or instructed thereon. (PLEASE NOTE: When such revisions are "directed or instructed" on the form, such typically means to fill in blank information within blanks spots provided for such, not to revise or change the information already printed thereon.)

Please feel free to revise any of the forms or documents (please note the following Exception pertaining to Power Points) provided hereto that were created by Michael S. Gifford (aka HAPA). You are free to utilize such forms and for your own purposes in the manner you feel is in your best interests. By downloading such forms you hereby agree that you and/or your HA is responsible to fully review each such form or document and to revise each to fully meet the individual needs of your HA and to correct any potential errors that may be entered thereon. (EXCEPTION PERTAINING TO POWERPOINTS: Any PowerPoint that I may be forwarded to you is for informational purposes only! Except as may be approved prior in writing by Michael S. Gifford, such PowerPoint MUST NOT be revised in any manner and must NOT be utilized by you or your HA to make any presentations outside of small groups of staff within your HA only. As such PowerPoint is the work product of Michael S. Gifford, you or your HA MUST NOT or cause to allow the PowerPoint to be utilized to be used to make ANY presentations to any other group outside of the "small internal group within your HA" named above, especially to any NAHRO national, regional, state, or local group.)
