Abstract Consider a mechanism design setting in which agents acquire costly information about an unknown, payoff-relevant state of nature before participating in the mechanism. Information gathering is covert. We investigate conditions under which (i) efficient implementation and (ii) full surplus extraction are Bayesian incentive compatible and interim individually rational.
