Costly and/or noisy communications constitute one of the main reasons for dispersion of information among different decision makers in large scale systems. Because of the technical constraints of communication links, other responsibilities may be given to decision makers besides the usual task of generating control actions on a process ; for instance, to select the instants at which messages must be sent to other agents of the organization, to decide data are worth transmitting, and, in generał, to define the communication, procedure for the information interchange. In the paper, a rather frequent communication network is considered, in which peripheral agents gather and communicate data to a central agent,who controls a single process operating in a stochastic environment. In a distributed information system, for example, the peripheral agents might be smart terminals transmitting data to a central computer which controls an industrial or an administrative process. The peripheral and the central agents are considered as the cooperating decision makers of a team.
