In this paper, we describe the distributed PeCo-Mediator which support a user to find a partner by using personal connections (PeCo). We have already proposed PeCo-Mediator which allows members to share and use their PeCo. PeCo-Mediator is very available in some small groups. In an organizational use, however, there are some problems; (1) It is difficult a user to offer his/her ties because they are private information; (2) Since this system only supports to find some candidate partners and relationships with them, a user has to negotiate with them to get the cooperation, using the offered connection. Distributed PeCo-Mediator has the two sub-systems; PeCo-Collector for maintaining the individual PeCo in his/her own site, and PeCo-Agent for supporting the negotiation between him/her and a candidate. It improves the privacy of users and also facilitates to find a cooperative and capable partner.
