(g) The Economic Value of a bid: The total net

present value of the reservation charge bid for

the release of firm capacity. The net present

value shall be computed from the monthly demand

and capacity, or reservation revenues to be

received over the term of the release contract,

using the discounted cash flow rate of return

methodology, with the rate of discounting, as

updated from time to time, to be posted on

Transporter's Designated Site.


For the capacity release business process timing

model, only the following methodologies are

required to be supported by capacity release

service providers and provided to Releasing

Shippers as choices from which they may select

and, once chosen, should be used in determining

the awards from the bid(s) submitted. They are:

1) highest rate, 2) net revenue and 3) present

value. Other choices of bid evaluation

methodology (including other Releasing Shipper

defined evaluation methodologies) can be accorded

similar timeline evaluation treatment at the

discretion of the capacity release service

provider. However, Transporter is not required to

offer other choices or similar timeline treatment

for other choices, nor, is Transporter held to the

timeline should the Releasing Shipper elect

another method of evaluation.


(h) Open Season: The minimum number of Business Days

allowed for posting releases and accepting bids.
