3.8 Assurance of Payment. If Transporter denies a request for service or does not approve the placement of

Requestor's name on the Approved Bidder List due to a failure to satisfy Transporter's creditworthiness

requirements, Requestor may obtain service or be placed on the Approved Bidder List if it provides Transporter

with assurance of payment in the manner set forth at Section 9 (Operating Conditions) of the General Terms and

Conditions and otherwise complies with the ongoing creditworthiness requirements set forth in Section 9. If

Requestor fails to tender such assurance of payment within the time period set forth in Section 9.6(c) or such

longer time period reasonably established by Transporter, Transporter may deny Requestor's request for service

or reject any bid submitted by Requestor.


3.9 Execution of Service Agreement. Following the approval of a request for service and the award of

service by Transporter, Transporter and Requestor shall enter into a new or amended Service Agreement under

each appropriate Rate Schedule in accordance with the provisions of Section 5 of the General Terms and

Conditions. If Requestor fails to execute such Service Agreement within 15 days after Transporter tenders it

to Requestor, or within such other time period agreed to by Transporter or required by a specific provision of

this Tariff, Requestor's request for service and Transporter's offer of service shall be void and of no

further force or effect. Service shall not commence until Requestor returns or transmits an executed

electronic or paper Service Agreement to Transporter in compliance with the provisions of the Tariff.

Transporter may waive the provisions of this subsection on a nondiscriminatory basis.


3.10 Record Retention. Transporter shall maintain records of all valid requests for service and their

disposition for a period of three years from the date of receipt of those requests. Transporter shall not

disclose such information, including information relating to bids for service, other than pursuant to the

provisions of this Tariff, a Commission proceeding or valid court order.
