This article has been developed in the frame of an IST European Project, where Companies and Universities of several countries of Europe have collaborated. The work presents a Decision Support System (DSS) to provide help in the bidding process. Critical decisions as bid/no bid, make/buy or decision of best final proposal have been realised. The tool performs a risk analysis and it uses the results in all the DSS phases.
