Many e-science applications take already advantage of numerous e-science infrastructures that evolved differently over the last couple of years. Along with this evolution, we observe still slow adoption of the open grid services architecture (OGSA) concept and thus interoperability between these infrastructures is still not seamlessly provided today. We argue that this is due to the absence of a realistically implementable reference model in Grids. In this contribution, we present our approach as one element of this reference model that focuses on the missing link between two emerging standards in the field of job management and information models in order to facilitate common open standards-based Grid interoperability.
