Successful bidders will have 5 business days from the date they receive the PEA and Schedules of Service to return executed documents and to satisfy Financial Assurance requirements. The amount of PEA Financial Assurances that NGTL may request from the Customer is an amount payable to NGTL under the Sc hedule of Service for 70 days plus one month for each year of term, up to 12 months total.
