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.
