(F) Voluntary Contribution Mechanism


Pipeline will include in invoices to Customers a voluntary contribution

mechanism allowing Customers to make voluntary contributions to GRI in such

amounts and for such GRI project(s) or project area(s) as Customers specify.

Customers may, but are not required to, make such voluntary contributions. The

voluntary contribution mechanism is not a pipeline rate, rate provision, or term

or condition of service. It is included in the invoice in accordance with the

January 21, 1998, Stipulation and Agreement Concerning GRI Funding approved by

the Commission in Gas Research Institute, 83 F.E.R.C. Par. 61,093 (1998), Order

on Rehearing, 83 F.E.R.C. Par. 61,331 (1998). Any amounts remitted to Pipeline

pursuant to the voluntary contribution mechanism shall be forwarded to GRI by

Pipeline and are not refundable by Pipeline.

annual charges assessed Pipeline pursuant to Part 382 of the Commission's

Regulations and Order Nos. 472 and 472-B except as permitted by this Section

15.5. This ACA Surcharge is in addition to any amounts otherwise payable to

Pipeline under said Rate Schedules.
