The following section blends the software operation into those dictated by policy within this set of Standard Operating Procedures.

Descriptions of the following SOPs are provided:

  1. Data Package Defined: A description of a data package’s components and how they are identified on the system disk.

  2. Data Package Life Cycle: A detailed description of a data package’s life cycle.
