Incentives for quality with costly inspections



This paper studies enforcement policies without commitment in a dynamic principal-agent setting with costly monitoring. The agent's private effort affects transitions in ``quality'' which evolves stochastically over time according to a two-state Markov chain. The principal schedules inspections and imposes fines based on inspection outcomes and the agent's unverifiable reports. The optimal enforcement policy features deterministic inspection cycles which are suspended in periods in which the agent reports low quality.
