determination of best bid is made, and ties are broken).


The above timelines shall only apply to the extent the releasing

shipper selects on of the following methodologies for the awarding of

capacity: highest rate, net revenue, or present

value. If the releasing shipper selects another methodology,

Transporter shall use reasonable efforts to process bids on the

timeline set forth above, but shall have no liability if it is

unable to do so.


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, the capacity release service provider is not

required to offer other choices or similar timeline treatment for other

choices, nor, is the capacity releasee service provider held to the timeline

should the releasing shipper elect another method of evaluation.
