GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE
24. NEGOTIATED RATES (Continued)
24.2 Filing requirement. Unless NBP executes and files a non-
conforming agreement, NBP will submit to the Commission on or
before the commencement of service under a Negotiated Rate
Contract a tariff sheet stating the exact legal name of the
Shipper, Negotiated Rate, the rate schedule, the receipt and
delivery points, the contract quantities and, where applicable,
the Negotiated Rate Formula underlying a Negotiated Rate for any
Negotiated Rate Agreement. The filing will contain a provision
that the Negotiated Rate Agreement does not deviate in any
material respect from the Form of Agreement in the tariff for the
applicable rate schedule.
24.3 Rate Treatment. NBP shall have the right to seek in future
general rate proceedings discount-type adjustments in the design
of its rates related to Negotiated Rate Agreements that were
converted from pre-existing discount Agreements to Negotiated Rate
Agreements. In those situations, NBP may seek a discount-type
adjustment based upon the greater of: (a) the Negotiated Rate
revenue received; or (b) the discounted tariff rate revenues which
otherwise would have been received.
24.4 Limitations. This Paragraph 24 does not authorize NBP to
negotiate terms and conditions of service.
24.5 Capacity Release. Negotiated Rates do not apply as the price cap
for capacity release transactions. Further, capacity release bids
must conform to NBP's applicable tariff rates, as further
described in Paragraph 19.6(b)(iv) of these General Terms and
Conditions of Service.
24.6 Accounting Treatment. NBP shall maintain separate records for all
revenues associated with Negotiated Rate transactions.
Transactions related to Negotiated Rate Agreements, which
originated as a pre-existing discounted service and were
subsequently converted, will be recorded separately from those
originating as Negotiated Rate Agreements. NBP shall record each
volume transported, billing determinants, rate component,
surcharge, and the revenue associated with its Negotiated Rates so
that this information can be filed, separately identified, and
separately totaled, as part of and in the format of Statements G,
I, and J in NBP's next general rate change application.
