terms specified in the posting; or (iii) include conditions or provisions that

Transporter determines, in its reasonable discretion, to be unacceptable.

of bids. Capacity shall be awarded, as set forth below, based on the acceptable

highest value of the bids offered to Transporter calculated in accordance with

this Section. Transporter shall report the winning bids on its website.

bidder submitting that highest value bid first in time, as determined by the

receipt time and date noted by Transporter with that first in time assignment
