written response should include either a determination of

creditworthiness status, clearly stating the reason(s) for KPC's

decision, or an explanation supporting a future date by which a

re-evaluation determination will be made. In no event should

requirements during the period of service, then KPC has the right

security or prepayment is not tendered in a time period as

reasonably determined by KPC, then KPC is not required to

continue service.
