Digital repositories can be defined by their policies and procedures. The integrated Rule Oriented Data System explicitly characterizes policies as computer actionable rules and procedures as computer executable micro-services. By tuning the policies and procedures, different data management applications can be created, including digital libraries for publishing data, persistent archives for preserving data, and data grids. Rules can be implemented that validate assessment criteria, automate administrative management functions, and enforce management policies. We examine the design criteria behind the creation of policy-based distributed data management systems, and the capabilities that are enabled.
