I have not found this word in my corporate business dictionaries. (Said dictionaries may not be of the highest quality, but I didn’t pick them.) The word nominations is being used in quite a bit of literature I am currently reading on the utilities industries (suppliers of electricity or natural gas). It is used in a way similar to “buy options,” but there are cases where that phrase substitution does not seem to make sense.
Any beanies, lawyers, or Utilities employees familiar with it, out here?
