Findings – The paper identifies a set of business scenarios to demonstrate the impact of different eRA strategies in this respect. Practical implications – The case research described in this paper proposes a detailed, achievable and valid approach to evaluating the complex issues associated with eRAs. Originality/value – The outcome of the investigation will provide valuable insights into the complexities associated with the eProcurement process.
