Permissions going back to "inherit"

Running Windows 2003 Server.  Once I set permissions on folders within a directory they stay the with the permissions I set but go back usually the next day and stay for a short time, then they 'inherit' the permissions of the folder or drive that they are on.  Which puts back the permissions set by the parent folder.

The person doing this has access to modifying permissions and the only thing he does not have access is having "ownership".  He has everything else.

what could be the problem.
