TRANSPORTATION GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
31. NEGOTIATED RATES (Continued)
31.2 Filing requirement. Unless GTN executes and files a
non-conforming agreement, GTN will submit to the Commission
on or before the commencement of service under a Negotiated Rate
Contract a tariff sheet stating the exact legal name of the
Shipper, Negotiated Rate, the rate schedule, the receipt and
delivery points, the contract quantities and, where applicable,
the Negotiated Rate Formula underlying a Negotiated Rate for any
Negotiated Rate Agreement. The filing will contain a provision
that the Negotiated Rate Agreement does not deviate any material
respect from the Form of Agreement in the tariff for the
applicable rate schedule.
31.3 Rate Treatment. GTN 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. In those situations, GTN may seek a
discount-type adjustment based upon the greater of: (a) the
Negotiated Rate revenue received; or (b) the discounted tariff
rate revenues which otherwise would have been received.
31.4 Limitations. This Paragraph 31 does not authorize GTN to
negotiate terms and conditions of service.
31.5 Capacity Release. Negotiated Rates do not apply as the price cap
for capacity release transactions. Further, capacity release bids
must conform to GTN's applicable tariff rates, as further
described in Section 28.6(b)(4) of these Transportation General
Terms and Conditions.
31.6 Accounting Treatment. GTN shall maintain separate records
for all revenues associated with Negotiated Rate transactions.
Transactions related to Negotiated Rate Agreements which
originated as a pre-existing discounted service and were
subsequently converted will be recorded separately from those
originating as Negotiated Rate Agreements. GTN shall
record each volume transported, billing determinants, rate
component, surcharge, and the revenue associated with its
Negotiated Rates so that this information can be filed,
separately identified, and separately totaled, as part of and
in the format of Statements G, I, and J in GTN's next
general rate change application.
