Policies have been adopted for many reasons within Web services and service-oriented architecture in general. However, while they are a favoured method of management, this only occurs at the service level and in the software domain. Policies already exist in a narrow variety more focussed on service properties such as authorisation. As a significant number of Web services become available, more emphasis needs to be placed on management of services in the business domain. In this paper, we propose a policy framework that can be used to express business requirements for Web services, at a business level that is more abstract than the high-level composition and orchestration technologies.
