In the modern business environment, the capability of an enterprise to generate value from its business knowledge influences in an increasingly important way its competitiveness. Towards this direction, knowledge-based systems can be a very effective tool for enhancing the productivity of knowledge workers by providing them with advanced knowledge processing capabilities. In this paper we describe such a system which utilizes organizational and domain knowledge in order to support consultants in the process of evaluating calls for tender.
