the capacity and the Replacement Customer's bid for the capacity,

and the provisions of Company's applicable Form of Service Agreement

capacity, with the terms of the award supplying the necessary

information to complete the applicable Form of Service Agreement.

follow Company's nomination deadlines, as set forth in Section 17.1

of these General Terms and Conditions. Such contracting process shall

be accomplished through Company's EBB.
