27.60 Selection of Best Bid (Continued)


27.61 Company's Bid Evaluation Methods (Continued)


(e) Best Bid


When the Company makes awards of capacity for

which there have been multiple Bids meeting

minimum conditions, the Company will award

Bids, Best Bid first, until all offered

capacity is awarded. [5.3.4]


(f) Tie-Breaker of Best Bids


To the extent there is more than one Best Bid

for Bids of five months or more, the offered

capacity shall be allocated on a pro rata basis

to potential Replacement Shipper(s) submitting

a Best Bid, subject to the condition that

potential Replacement Shipper(s) must specify

when making its Bid whether it is willing to

accept a pro rata portion of its Bid capacity.

If a Best Bid does not specify the Bidder's

willingness to accept a pro rata allocation of

the capacity and it is necessary to allocate

capacity on a pro rata basis, then no capacity

will be awarded to such Best Bid. In the event

there is more than one Best Bid for Bids of

less than five months, the capacity will be

awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
