The paper describes a prototype decision support/expert system for contractor prequalification, CP-DSS. The system firstly evaluates contractors' capabilities according to the project specific criteria. It then identifies any risk that may be caused by contractors. Finally, contractors are appraised according to their likely performance, management capability, reputation, resources, progress, competitiveness and activeness.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
