Abstract

Procurement legislation stipulates that information about the goods, services, or works, that tax-funded authorities wish to purchase are made publicly available in a procurement contract notice. However, for businesses wishing to tender for such competitive opportunities, finding relevant procurement contract notices presents a challenging professional search task. In this talk, we will provide an overview of procurement search and then describe the challenges in addressing the related search and recommendation tasks.
