(b) Pre-qualified Bidders may submit bids during the Bidding

Period applicable to a Release Request. All bids must be

submitted via LINK®. In transmitting a bid, Bidders

recognize that such bid will be accessible by other Bidders

via LINK®; however LINK® will identify bids by bid number

only and the name of the Bidder will not be posted.


(c) Bidding will be an iterative process in that a Bidder may

submit any number of Bids during the Bidding Period;

provided that each new submission of a Bid effects the

withdrawal of the previous one such that a Bidder may not

have more than one Bid in contention for the capacity at the

same time. If a Bidder withdraws its Bid and resubmits a

new Bid, such new Bid must be at a higher rate. A Bidder

retains the right to withdraw its Bid by resubmitting a new

bid or with written or electronic notice of withdrawal,

until the close of the Bidding Period at which time such Bid

shall become binding.

(i) the identity of the Bidder (which will be concealed

(ii) the Release Request number to which the Bid relates;

the released transportation rights. For releases that

become effective on or after July 30, 2008, a bid rate

in excess of the maximum tariff rate for the

applicable service can be submitted for a proposed

release with a term of one (1) year or less if the

effective date of the proposed release is on or before
