Abstract

In a policy system supporting solicited decisions, the "decision point" (the entity requesting the decision) can pass information to the "decision maker" (the entity making the decision). Such information guides the decision maker's decision processing. However, the information that needs to be provided depends on the current policies. We disclose an optimal mechanism for determining which data should be transmitted from decision point to decision maker.
