6.5 Capacity Release Requirements.


(a) All terms and conditions relating to a release which is the

subject of a Capacity Release Request: (i) must be nondiscriminatory and

applicable to all potential bidders; (ii) must be made available to

TransColorado for posting; (iii) must relate solely to the details of

acquiring or maintaining the transportation capacity rights on TransColorado,

which are the subject of the release; and (iv) must not place any obligations

or burdens on TransColorado in addition to the terms and conditions applicable

to a capacity release under this Section 6 which are specified in

TransColorado's Tariff. Any bid evaluation procedure elected by a Releasing

Shipper different from TransColorado's bid evaluation procedure set forth in

Sections 6.10(b) through 6.10(d) must be objective, nondiscriminatory in all

circumstances and contain a complete description of the bid evaluation

procedure for posting on TransColorado's Interactive Website. TransColorado

may require the Releasing Shipper to submit a working computer program to

TransColorado in diskette form which is compatible with TransColorado's

Interactive Website which will enable TransColorado to make such alternative

bid evaluation entirely through TransColorado's Interactive Website, prior to

the time any alternative bid evaluation procedure is requested, if such bid

evaluation procedure is not based on (i) highest rate; (ii) net revenue; or

(iii) present value as determined in Sections 6.10(b)(i) through 6.10(b)(iv)

(collectively referred to as "Acceptable Alternative Bid Evaluation

Procedure") and the remaining procedures set forth in Sections 6.10(c) and

6.10(d). If the Releasing Shipper elects a bid evaluation procedure that

differs from TransColorado's bid evaluation procedure or the Acceptable

Alternative Bid Evaluation Procedure and the remaining procedures set forth in

Sections 6.10(c) and 6.10(d), TransColorado shall not be held to the

subsequent deadlines set forth in this Section 6, but TransColorado shall make

a reasonable attempt to adhere to such deadlines. TransColorado shall publish

standards relating to such computer diskettes, but it is the responsibility of

the Releasing Shipper to develop and provide the working computer diskette.

The Releasing Shipper shall warrant that the computer diskette conforms to the

bid evaluation procedure in the Capacity Release Request.


(b) The term of any release of capacity sought under this

Section 6 shall be at least one full day and shall not exceed the remaining

term of the Eligible Firm Transportation Agreement.


(c) The quantity sought to be released under a Capacity Release

Request shall not be less than the minimum quantity required for the Eligible

Firm Transportation Agreement under TransColorado's Tariff.
