RFC 2748 [COPS] defines the COPS protocol, and RFC 2749 [COPS-RSVP]
describes how the COPS protocol is used to provide for the outsourcing
of policy decisions for RSVP. Another usage of the COPS protocol, for
the provisioning of policy, is introduced in RFC 3084 [COPS-PR]. In
this provisioning model, the policy information is viewed as a
collection of Provisioning Classes (PRCs) and Provisioning Instances
(PRIs) residing in a virtual information store, termed the Policy
Information Base (PIB). Collections of related Provisioning Classes are
defined in a PIB module. PIB modules are written using an adapted
subset of SNMP's Structure of Management Information (SMI) [SMI, TC,
CONF]. It is the purpose of this document, the Structure of Policy
Provisioning Information (SPPI), to define that adapted subset.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
