47.7 Assessing Negotiated Rate Bids for Available Firm Capacity. For

purposes of assessing bids for available firm capacity pursuant to General

Terms and Conditions Section 4, the net present value of Negotiated Rate bids

containing a reservation rate or other form of revenue guarantee which

exceeds the applicable Recourse Rate during all or any portion of the term

contained in the bid, shall not exceed the net present value that is

calculated assuming that the applicable Recourse Rate is in effect during the

full term contained in the bid, in place of the reservation rate or other

revenue guarantee contained in the bid.


47.8 Rate Treatment. Transporter shall have the right to seek in future

general rate proceedings discount-type adjustments in the design of its rates

related to Negotiated Rate agreements that were converted from pre-existing

discount agreements to Negotiated Rate agreements, provided that the type of

pre-existing service is not altered as a result of the conversion to a

Negotiated Rate. In those situations, Transporter may seek a discount-type

47.9 Negotiated Rate Surcharge and Retainage Components. If Transporter

negotiates surcharge or retainage percentage rate components at lower than

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



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.
