awarded to the replacement shipper that offers a rate and

term yielding a present value equal to or greater than the

present value of the releasing shipper's transportation

rate of return divided by 12 months.

n = term of the agreement, in months.


(d) If two or more bids are of equal value, the

capacity shall be awarded according to the criteria

awarding bids of equal value is specified, the capacity

shall be awarded to those bidders pro rata based on the

ratio the quantity bid by those bidders bears to the total

quantity bid by all bidders multiplied by the quantity of

capacity released.


(e) If no bid is submitted meeting all of the

rates, terms and conditions in the releasing shipper's

release notice, then no award of capacity shall be made.

offer is received during a bid period or the pre-arranged

offer is for the applicable maximum reservation charge and
