pursuant to one of the following methods:

(iv) Releasing Shipper's Criteria. Releasing Shipper may at

the time of posting of the notice of release specify how

bids are to be evaluated to determine which offer is the

best. The criteria must be objectively stated,

applicable to all potential bidders, and

nondiscriminatory. The criteria can contain provisions

that allow for weighting of factors such as quantity,

term, and rate; however, Transporter will not accept

first bidder meeting minimum acceptable terms of the

release as a valid bid evaluation methodology. If bid

evaluation criteria are provided by the Releasing

Shipper, Transporter is not obligated to comply with the

NAESB Timeline as specified in Section 9.5(c), hereof,

but will evaluate the bids promptly in conformance with

the timeline specified in Section 9.5(b), hereof.
