4.3 Posting and Bidding Timeline. For the Capacity Release

business process timing model, only the following methodologies

shall be supported by BLUEWATER and provided to Releasing Customers

as choices from which they may select and, once chosen, shall be

used in determining the awards from the bid(s) submitted. They are:

1) highest rate, 2) net revenue and 3) present value. Other choices

of bid evaluation methodology (including other Releasing Customer

defined evaluation methodologies) can be accorded similar timeline

evaluation treatment at BLUEWATER's discretion; however, BLUEWATER

is not required to offer other choices or similar timeline treatment

for other choices. Further, BLUEWATER shall not be held to the

timeline specified in Sections 4.3(a) and 4.3(b) below should the

Releasing Customer elect another method of evaluation. Should the

Releasing Customer elect another method of evaluation, the timeline

specified in Section 4.3(c) below shall apply. The proposed

duration of Customer's release determines the minimum bid period for

the Customer's offer pursuant to this Section 4. The Capacity

Release timeline is applicable to all parties involved in the

Capacity Release process; however, it is only applicable if (i) all

information provided by the parties to the transaction is valid and

the Replacement Customer has been determined to be creditworthy

before the capacity release bid is tendered and (ii) there are no

special terms or conditions of the release.

- Offers shall be tendered by 12:00 p.m. CCT on a Business
