4.            On a not unduly discriminatory basis, to reject any bid or service request that, in Tennessee's sole determination, is incomplete, is inconsistent with the terms of this Open Season, contains additions or modifications to the terms of the open season, is otherwise deficient in any respect (including failure to provide credit support as Tennessee deems necessary), or requests service outside the scope of this Open Season.

All bids submitted during the open season may be replaced with a higher Net Present Value (“NPV”) bid during the Open Season Period.  Bids cannot be replaced with lower NPV bids.  Upon completion of this Open Season, all remaining bids will be considered binding until a successful bid(s) has been awarded.

All final bids received during the Open Season will be evaluated in accord with the present value formula set forth in Article VI, Section 1.6(b) and 2.6(b) of Tennessee's Tariff; provided that the term used for the purposes of the formula will be the term proposed by the Bidder; and provided further that any bid rate higher than the maximum applicable rate shall be deemed to be a bid equal to the maximum applicable rate.
