The question of development of formalized knowledge representation language for modeling business processes, taking into account the structure of a distributed information system is considered in this paper. As a result, the description of the basic concepts and structure of the business process model in a distributed information system were proposed.

The model of a multi-level architecture of interaction of business processes in the operation of a distributed network. The structure of the model consists of two ontologies, ontology first - section of business process modeling. It introduces the basic concepts and relationships required for modeling business processes in sufficient detail. The second ontology is designed to adapt to a distributed information system. In this section, concepts and relations introduced in the first section, bind to different network users and software components that are deployed in the network.
