4.15 Non-Conforming Negotiated Rates (Continued)


(d) (i) Treatment of discounts: A discount adjustment to

recourse rates shall only be allowed to the extent

that Transporter can meet the standards required of an

affiliate discount type adjustment including requiring

that the Transporter shall have the burden of proving

that any discount granted is required to meet



Transporter shall be required to demonstrate that any

discount type adjustment does not have an adverse

impact on recourse rate shippers.


(A) Demonstrating that, in the absence of

Transporter's entering into such non-conforming

negotiated rate agreement providing for such

discount, Transporter would not have been able

to contract for such capacity at any higher

rate, and that recourse rates would otherwise

be as high or higher than recourse rates which

result after applying the discount adjustment;



(B) Making another comparable showing that the

non-conforming negotiated rate discount

contributes more fixed costs to the system than

could have been achieved without the discount.


(ii) Transporter may also seek to include in a

discount-type adjustment non-conforming negotiated

rate agreements that were converted from pre-existing

discounted Part 284 agreements to non-conforming

negotiated rate agreements. Such adjustment would be

based on the greater of: (i) the negotiated rate

revenues received or (ii) the discounted recourse rate

revenues which otherwise would have been received.
