(xxi) whether the proposed release is to a marketer

participating in a state-regulated retail access

program as defined in Section 284.8(h)(4) of the

Commission's regulations.


The following information shall be supplied by COMPANY with

each Offer: (i) the reservation charge (and reservation

surcharges) applicable to the capacity being released, (ii)

the reservation charge (including reservation surcharges))

converted to a 100% load-factor volumetric rate if the Offer

requires bids on a volumetric rate basis, (iii) the date and

time the Offer was posted on SoNet Premier, and (iv) the

date and time the bid period ends.


(d) Prearranged Bidders: A RELEASING SHIPPER must identify in

its Offer any "Prearranged Bid" to be made on the firm

capacity offered for release. However, the "Prearranged

Bidder" must also meet all of the requirements established

for bidders pursuant to Section 20.6(e)-(g) below. A

Prearranged Bidder must also submit its bid in accordance

with Section 20.6(f) below. For bids on Offers in which the

Prearranged Bidder tenders a bid for the offered capacity at

the maximum reservation charge applicable to the RELEASING

SHIPPER'S service or at a higher reservation charge

applicable to releases that become effective on or after

July 30, 2008, when the term proposed is for one (1) year or

less and the release takes effect on or before one (1) year

from the date on which the COMPANY was notified of such

release, for the full volume, capacity and term offered by

the RELEASING SHIPPER, and the Prearranged Bidder satisfies

all of the requirements of Section 20.6(e)-(g) below, the

Prearranged Bid will be deemed the "best bid".


The COMPANY shall thereafter post on SoNet Premier, as set

forth in Section 20.3(c) above, the identity of the

Prearranged Bidder, and the terms upon which the capacity

was released. In all other situations, but except in those

situations where Releasing Shipper is not required to post

the Offer as set forth above in Section 20.3(c), the

Prearranged Bid shall constitute the minimum bid price for

all other bidders, and shall be posted on the RELEASING

SHIPPER'S Offer as such. If the COMPANY does not receive

any better bid by the date on which all bids are due, the

Prearranged Bid shall be deemed the best bid. If the

COMPANY does receive a better bid by the date on which all

bids are due, the Prearranged Bidder shall have the right to

match the terms of the better bid by the deadline

established in Section 20.6(a) above. If the Prearranged

Bidder matches the better bid, the Prearranged Bidder shall

be deemed to have made the best bid.
