Cost allocation problems within the GLPG class of games (Generalized Linear Programming Games) are considered in this paper. We assume that a group of agents participate in a common project and each agent defines his requirements for his expected benefit resulting from the project. Then, the joint cost of the project must be allocated amongst the agents in order to satisfy a set of required properties.
