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 and in lieu of choosing one of the

may state an alternative bid evaluation 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

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

data interchange until the expiration of the Bid Period, except for those
