In this paper we propose an agent oriented framework for producing complex information systems using the electronic institutions paradigm. We define an intelligent organization environment that enables the use of available information technologies resources with MAS technology. Using electronic institutions we control the interactions of the intervening agents and the commitments generated by those interactions according to institutional specification. From an information systems developer point of view, our framework allows to separate form design, work-flow specification, and the programming of business rules and agent behaviour in the development of large information systems.
