The RIF should be used to permit the BP designer a unified view of the different partners' business rules in designing the process, while at the same time permitting the partners to continue to leverage their own business rules without changing their own technologies.
The RIF can help to make such domains more tractable and amenable to machine processing by allowing rules to be labelled with tags that express the necessary meta-level information required to make a reasoned determination as to the intended status of a given rule.

 Rif - Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre
Las montañas del Rif albergan una subespecie propia de abeja melífera denominada Apis mellifera major, con las cuales los marroquíes practican la apicultura.
El Rif es una zona con influencia española desde hace siglos, ya que muchos musulmanes que escaparon de España durante el reinado de los Reyes Católicos se instalaron aquí y desde 1912 hasta 1956 formó parte del Protectorado Español.
La rebelión del Rif, dirigida por Abd-el-Krim en 1921 que provocó en las tropas españolas el desastre de Annual y que fue aplastada finalmente por España con la ayuda de Francia (al mando del que luego sería presidente de la república, general Petain), constituye el primer antecedente de reivindicaciones nacionalistas de Marruecos.

 Geopium - Jane's Intelligence Review - Morocco said to produce nearly half of the world's hashish supply - ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The Rif region of Morocco is home to probably the largest acreage of cannabis cultivation in the world, and the hashish produced makes the country the world’s largest producer and exporter of the drug.
Cannabis cultivation in the Rif is intrinsically tied up with this long, complex and violent history of rivalries, tolerance, and conflict, and is thus well entrenched in the region, both politically and economically.
The Rif is one of the most unsuitable regions for intensive agricultural production: a rugged relief of steep slopes and poor soils, combined with heavy but irregular rainfall compounded by a lack of irrigation infrastructures, make most crops other than cannabis not worth the labour invested.

In addition to using the RIF process for reductions in time status and separations, it should also be used for involuntary demotions, salary reductions, and transfers, if either of those actions is taken due to reorganization or budget reduction.
While it is only mandatory that the RIF process be applied to classified employees, we recommend it be followed for all employees and that all employees be considered when instituting a RIF.
Because the RIF process uses objective criteria, decisions made using it are less likely to be successfully challenged.
