10.3 PCB Statement of Compliance. For all transformers supplied to CPS, the vendor shall provide to the CPS Environmental Section a "Statement of Compliance" that the oil in the transformers meets the PCB requirements of Section 4.0 of this specification when the transformers are delivered to CPS. Each Statement of Compliance shall include the name of the manufacturer and the serial numbers of all applicable transformers. The Statement of Compliance shall be sent to the MSDS Data Manager, c/o CPS Environmental Section, Main Office 4th Floor, P.O. Box 1771, San Antonio, TX 78296-1771. 10.4 Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). The manufacturer shall provide copies of the MSDS for any chemical component supplied in or with equipment and/or accessories as required by OSHA Hazard Communication Standard 29 CFR 1910.120. This requirement applies to any substance for which CPS would be required to have an MSDS due to CPS personnel either using or being exposed to the substance while inspecting, operating or maintaining the equipment. MSDS(s) shall be received prior to or with first delivery. The vendor is also responsible for providing any updates of respective MSDS(s). All MSDS(s) and updates shall be sent to the MSDS Data Manager, c/o CPS Environmental Section, Main Office 4th Floor, P.O. Box 1771, San Antonio, TX 78296-1771. 10.5 Approval Drawings. If any horizontal dimension of the assembled transformer exceeds 46 inches, the vendor must submit drawings for approval with the quotation. 11.0 TRANSFORMER LOSS EVALUATION Transformer losses will be considered in the evaluation of bids in accordance with the following formula: Total Evaluated Bid = Selling Price + (A) (Excitation Losses) + (B) (Load Losses) Where the excitation losses and load losses are guaranteed average loss values submitted by the vendor and the loss factors (A) and (B) are the cost per watt values provided by CPS with the Request for Quotation and the Purchase Order. 11.1 Definitions. 11.1.1 Total Evaluated Bid. Actual figure used by CPS in bid evaluation. 11.1.2 Selling Price. The price CPS will be charged for each transformer. 11.1.3 Item. An item is defined as all transformers of a single type, kVA size, and voltage (i.e. single CPS material number) on each CPS Request for Quotation, Purchase Order or Purchase Order Release.

CPS Specification No. 427-04 Approved: November 18, 2004 Page 8

11.1.4 Purchase Order. A purchase order is defined as all transformers that are purchased by CPS on a single purchase order number and release number for that contract period. 11.1.5 Excitation (No-Load) Losses. Those losses (in watts, corrected to 20C) which are incident to the excitation of the transformer at 100% rated voltage and rated frequency with no externally connected load. Excitation losses are defined in IEEE Standard C57.12.80, Section 3.7.2.2. 11.1.6 Load Losses. Those losses (in watts, corrected to 85C) which are incident to the carrying of 100% rated current at rated frequency through the windings of the transformer with the output winding short-circuited. Load losses are defined in IEEE Standard C57.12.80, Section 3.7.2.3. 11.1.7 Total Losses. The sum of the excitation losses and the load losses. Total losses are defined in IEEE Standard C57.12.80, Section 3.7.2.1. 11.1.8 Guaranteed Average Losses. The guaranteed average excitation, load, and total losses are those values specified by the vendor with the quotation. 11.2 Transformer Loss Tolerances. Actual losses on each transformer shall not exceed the guaranteed average losses by more than the following percentages, as specified in IEEE Standard C57.12.00. Excitation Losses Total Losses 10% 6%

Any individual transformer, with actual measured losses exceeding the guaranteed average losses by more than the allowable percentages indicated above, will be subject to return to the vendor for repair or replacement at the discretion of CPS. Whether or not the transformer is returned, a $50 penalty (separate from the losses penalty) will be assessed for exceeding the allowable percentages. Should CPS elect to keep the transformer, a losses penalty will be assessed on the individual transformer in accordance with the following formula, and that penalty will be added to the above penalty. In addition, this transformer's losses will be used in calculating average losses for the Purchase Order. Losses Penalty = (A) (Actual Excitation Losses - Guaranteed Average Excitation Losses) + (B) (Actual Load Losses - Guaranteed Average Load Losses) Where factors (A) and (B) are the cost per watt values provided with the Request for Quotation and the Purchase Order.

CPS Specification No. 427-04 Approved: November 18, 2004 Page 9

11.3 Loss Quotation Form. The vendor shall supply the following information with the quotation by filling out and returning a "CPS Distribution Transformer Loss Quotation Form." This completed form is required in order for the quotation to be considered complete and valid. a. Selling price b. Guaranteed average excitation losses in watts, corrected to 20C c. Guaranteed average load losses in watts, corrected to 85C d. Guaranteed average total losses in watts (Sum b + c) e. Guaranteed percent impedance, corrected to 85C f. Total evaluated bid as calculated from the loss evaluation formula using the appropriate loss factors 11.4 Bid Award. Each manufacturer shall provide City Public Service with guaranteed no-load and load losses. These losses will be used in determining the total evaluated bid (total owning cost) of the transformer. The lowest total evaluated bid per item will be multiplied by a factor of 1.03 to establish the upper limit of the evaluation window. All bids which fall within this total owning cost window will be considered equal. The award will then be made based upon selling price (first cost) and/or delivery. 11.5 Testing. The manufacturer's actual test data (See Section 10.2) will be verified and adjusted, if necessary, by CPS test results. The verified test data is then used to determine whether or not the actual losses of the transformers supplied to CPS exceed the guaranteed average losses. 11.6 Loss Evaluation. Any Purchase Order or Purchase Order Release of transformers whose total actual owning cost exceeds the total guaranteed owning cost will receive a penalty in accordance with the following procedure: Note: Penalties are calculated on a release basis for transformers purchased under a CPS Annual Order. 11.6.1 A loss evaluation is calculated for each item on the Purchase Order or Purchase Order Release in accordance with the following formula: Item Evaluation =[Number of Units on that Item] [(A) (Average of Actual Excitation Losses - Guaranteed Average Excitation Losses) + (B) (Average of Actual Load Losses - Guaranteed Average Load Losses)]

CPS Specification No. 427-04 Approved: November 18, 2004 Page 10

Where the appropriate factors (A) and (B) are the cost per watt values provided on the "CPS Distribution Transformer Loss Quotation Form". 11.6.2 The loss evaluations for all items on the Purchase Order or Purchase Order Release are totaled, and the result is the amount of the penalty that will be assessed for that Purchase Order or Purchase Order Release. No credit will be given for a Purchase Order or Purchase Order Release with a negative loss evaluation total. 12.0 INSPECTION AND TESTING 12.1 Inspection. All transformers will be subject to inspection by a designated CPS representative to assure compliance with CPS requirements. 12.2 Manufacturers Tests.
