I need a word to fit the meaning "Groups together certain rules that determine one decision."

For example

  • groups together those rules/considerations that determine a job-applicant's salary
  • groups together those rules/considerations that determine a person's eligibility for a loan

Is "decision point" or "decision subject" a good word? Are there alternatives?
