This paper presents the results of research carried out in the field of developing decision support systems for quality Smart City services. The decision-making system consists of two sets of Agents: Service Provider Agents and Service Consumer Agents. The interaction between the Agent sets is governed by the knowledge base which is managed by the Service Quality Assessors. Service quality is evaluated based on a Multi-Objective Optimization model competitively performed by applying game theory (Nash Equilibrium) between Agent sets involving available resources and knowledge. The paper developed: interaction diagram between Agents and services offered by Smart City, interaction diagram between sets of Agents to provide quality services, and multi-level infrastructure diagram for decision support system. The Multi-Objective Optimization problem is defined in the form of the set of objective functions for the evaluation of service quality and the set of constraint functions for service state parameters and action parameters for service provision.
