Title
(EN) Automated information retrieval based on supplier risk
Abstract
(EN)

Techniques are provided for automated information retrieval based on supplier risk. In an embodiment, a selection of a supplier identifier value that identifies a supplier during a supplier onboarding process in an e-procurement system is received. A digital data repository of the e-procurement system is queried to seek a data record matching the selected supplier identifier value. In response to determining that the data repository has a record matching the selected supplier identifier value, a risk score value associated with the selected supplier identifier value is identified from a dataset of risk score values that is stored in the data repository. A unique mapping table is generated that maps each supplier risk score value of one or more supplier risk score values to one or more information request identifiers, the one or more supplier risk score values including the risk score value associated with the selected supplier identifier value. A custom digital data entry form is generated that comprises one or more information request fields that are mapped to the risk score value associated with the selected supplier identifier value. The custom data entry form is transmitted to a computer associated with the supplier corresponding to the selected supplier identifier value, the custom data form prompting the supplier to take action, respond, or contribute information back to the server computer.
