Original Sheet No. 2108 Original Sheet No. 2108 GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS Section 9 (Cont'd) 9.5.8 Limitations: This Section 9.5 does not authorize Texas Gas to negotiate terms and conditions of service. 9.6 Gas Research Institute - General RD&D Funding Unit Voluntary Contributions: Transporter will provide a "check the box" option on invoices for shippers to voluntarily contribute funds to GRI. 9.7 FERC Annual Charge Adjustment (ACA) Unit Charge 9.7.1 Purpose: The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1986 (Act), by its Section 3401(a)(1), requires the Commission to assess and collect fees and annual charges in any fiscal year (October 1 through September 30) in amounts equal to all of the costs incurred by the Commission in that fiscal year. Transporter will be required to remit to the Commission Transporter's share of any FERC undercollections as calculated on Transporter's Annual Charges Bill for the current fiscal year. For the purpose of recovering this payment, this Section establishes a FERC ACA Unit Charge (pursuant to Commission authority) to be applicable to all jurisdictional transportation quantities transported. By electing the FERC ACA Unit Charge method of recovery, Transporter hereby acknowledges its intent not to recover any annual charges recorded in FERC Account No. 928 in an NGA Section 4 rate case. 9.7.2 Basis of the FERC ACA Unit Charge: Transporter's FERC ACA Unit Charge shall be comprised of the following: (1) the charge factor which has been stated on Transporter's Annual Charges Bill, and approved by the Commission, for the current fiscal year, and (2) an adjustment to that factor to account for the adjustment (Debit or Credit) made to Transporter's Annual Charges Bill for Transporter's portion of any FERC over or under collections for the current fiscal year. This combined factor will be adjusted to Transporter's pressure base and heating value, if required. 9.7.3 Filing Procedure: Pursuant to Section 154.22 of the Commission's Regulations, Transporter shall file, at least thirty (30) days prior to the effective date of an ACA filing, and post, pursuant to Section 154.16 of the Commission's Regulations, the necessary tariff sheets to reflect the FERC approved ACA Unit Charge, unless, for good cause shown, a lesser notice period and different effective date is allowed by valid Commission order.
