GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
47.9 Negotiated Rate Surcharge and Retainage Components. If Transporter negotiates surcharge or retainage
percentage rate components at lower than the maximum rate level for those components as part of a Negotiated
Rate arrangement, it will assume any under-recovery of costs or retainage from negotiated shippers in order
to ensure that its recourse Shippers are not better or worse off due to Negotiated Rate arrangements with
individual Shippers. To accomplish this, Transporter will credit full recourse rate surcharge and retainage
amounts to the appropriate surcharge and retainage accounts.
47.10 Relationship to Section 20 of the General Terms and Conditions. If Transporter negotiates specific
surcharge components of its rates, rather than total rates, as part of a Negotiated Rate arrangement, the
attribution policy in Section 20 of the General Terms and Conditions shall not apply.
47.11 Filing Requirement. With respect to Negotiated Rate arrangements, unless Transporter executes and
files a non-conforming service agreement, Transporter will file with the Commission a tariff sheet stating
the exact legal name of the Shipper, the Negotiated Rate, the rate schedule, the receipt and delivery
points, the contract quantities, and where applicable, any Negotiated Rate formula. The Negotiated Rate
arrangement shall not become effective earlier than the filing date of the tariff sheet, unless the
Negotiated Rate arrangement is dependent on information available on the first day of the month, and the
filing date of the tariff sheet falls after the first day of the month. Any such filed tariff sheet will
contain a statement that the Negotiated Rate agreement does not deviate in any material aspect from the Form
of Agreement in the tariff for the applicable rate schedule.
47.12 Accounting Treatment. To ensure compliance with the foregoing Sections 47.8, 47.9, 47.10 and
47.11, and to ensure that recourse Shippers are not better or worse off due to Negotiated Rate arrangements,
Transporter shall maintain and provide separately identified and totaled volume, billing determinant, rate
or surcharge component, and revenue accounting information for its Negotiated Rate arrangements in any
general or limited rate change filing that it makes. Transactions related to Negotiated Rate agreements
that originated as a pre-existing discounted service and were subsequently converted will be recorded
separately from those originating as Negotiated Rate agreements.
