In this paper we sketch a framework supporting contract enactment within the context of virtual organisation units that are dynamically created in order to achieve a common objective by securely sharing resources, services and information. The framework is built on top of a joint extension of the policy deployment architecture for peer-to-peer communities that we proposed in [1] and the contract enactment capability described in [6] that enables monitoring, mediation, arbitration and enforcement of electronic contracts in multiple, simultaneous closed collaborations. A longer-term goal is to deliver a scalable method of setting up contract enforcement and contract performance management infrastructures for inter-organisational information systems that allow the on-demand creation and dynamic evolution of secure Virtual Organisations based on the ad-hoc integration of systems across Enterprise boundaries.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
