The analysis of business requirements and the specification of business processes are fundamental for the development of information systems. The first part of this paper presents B-Tropos as a way to combine business goals and requirements to the business process model. B-Tropos enhances a well-known agent-oriented early requirements engineering framework with declarative business process-oriented constructs, inspired by the DecSerFlow and ConDec languages. In the second part of the paper, we show a mapping of B-Tropos onto SCIFF, a computational logic-based framework, for properties and conformance verification.
