    Mobile Grid Services have given the ability to move jobs, data and application software from nodes to
    nodes during jobs execution in the grid environment. These migrations depend on the grid’s users and the
    grid’s nodes policies. The heterogeneity, diversity of policies and attributes leads to a need for policy
    management tools that can handle these problems. Also, before the users can submit their jobs or run
    their applications on a certain resource or system they may need to guarantee that this resource or
    system has not been compromised, which could result in their own application or data being stolen or
    asking for certain users to be allowed to access the service. To date, not enough attention has been paid
    to policies that deal with such concerns. Most existing grid systems have support only limited types of
    policies (e.g. CPU resources). A few designs consider enforcing data policies in their architecture.
    Therefore, we propose a dynamic policy framework that addresses these issues (user-submitted policy,
    data policy and multiple Virtual Organizations (VOs).
