Procurement for e-Government is an important part of activities which are similar to the nature of B2B. That is usually characterized by bulk volumes with complex variables, bureaucratic workflows and the need to function in a regulated environment under which many partners participated. In the past, e-Government procurement involved a lot of manual processes which are known to be time-consuming and may be error-prone.
