The principal aim of the GOLD project is to carry out research into enabling technology to support the formation, operation and termination of Virtual Organisations (VOs). This technology has been implemented in the form of a set of middleware components, which address issues such as trust, security, contract monitoring and enforcement, information management and coordination. The paper discusses these elements, presents the services required to implement them and analyzes the architecture and services. The paper follows a top down approach starting with a brief outline on the architectural elements, derived during the requirements engineering phase and demonstrates how these architectural elements were mapped onto actual services that were implemented according to SOA principles and related techololgies.
