restated on a volumetric basis, or on a percentage

basis of the maximum rate, or for a release on a

volumetric basis the volumetric commitments,

and/or any other minimum conditions. The Customer

must state any rates equal to the number of

decimal places in the stated rates per Pipeline's

Rate Schedule. Customer may elect not to reveal

such minimum conditions to anyone other than

Pipeline until after finalization of all

contractual arrangements or until the close of the

bid period if no bids were submitted.

(i) Customer may choose a "best bid" evaluation method

stated in Section 3.14(F). At Customer's option

method. Such bid evaluation method shall be

objectively stated, applicable to all Replacement

or Prearranged Customers and not unduly

discriminatory. If Customer states an alternative

bid evaluation method, Pipeline is not held to the

standard release timelines in Section 3.14(B), and

the timeline in Section 3.14(B)(3) will apply.

the contingency is not eliminated, all details

concerning the evaluation of other bids,

(k) if Customer does not desire immediate posting of

Customer's Notice or bids received, Customer shall

provide the posting date and time, insofar as it

comports with Section 3.14(B),

(l) expiration of Matching Period if other than

Pipeline's default as outlined in Section 3.14(B)

herein, and,

(m) any additional terms and conditions of releases

that are objective and non-discriminatory (e.g.

any tie-breaking methodology, agency agreement

requirements, limiting reassignment, changing

Point(s) of Delivery, or indemnification agreement

requirements.) In all cases, however, Customer's

specified bid evaluation method must be set forth

with sufficient specificity that the Pipeline's

evaluation of the bids to determine the "best bid"

is a purely ministerial matter that does not

require any discretionary exercise of judgment by

expiration of the Bid Period, except for those

Customers' Notices for capacity release of a duration
