We investigate agent supervision, a form of customization, which constrains the actions of an agent so as to enforce certain desired behavioral specifications. This is done in a setting based on the Situation Calculus and a variant of the ConGolog programming language which allows for nondeterminism, but requires the remainder of a program after the execution of an action to be determined by the resulting situation. Such programs can be fully characterized by the set of action sequences that they generate. Hence operations like intersection and difference become natural. The main results of the paper are a characterization of the maximally permissive supervisor that minimally constrains the agent so as to enforce the desired behavioral constraints when some agent actions are uncontrollable, and a sound and complete technique to execute the agent as constrained by such a supervisor.
