potential collateral requirements.
1. The Bidder Credit Rating (or Bidder’s Credit Support Provider’s Credit Rating) will
determine the amount of Maximum Uncollateralized Supplier Exposure ESI will allocate
to each Bidder. The Bidder Credit Rating has no impact on the selection of proposals to
the primary award list and/or the secondary award list.
2. Credit exposures will be evaluated and discussed with Bidders who are selected for the
