Automatic tender evaluation is arguably one of the most critical functions for the success of a comprehensive government e-procurement system. A pilot e-procurement system was initiated in VietNam in 2009 that included an e-bidding component. In the pilot system tender evaluation was conducted manually which created a barrier for user adoption. To secure the trust of the users the automation of tender evaluation must fully respect the existing manual procedures and their cultural context. This paper evaluates the manual tender evaluation procedures which are currently been using in VietNam, and identifies limitations of them when taking automatic tender evaluation into account. The paper describes an automated approach to online tender evaluation that strikes a balance between computational efficiency and cultural expediency.
