The Guardian of the Republic: A conceptual system to detect outliers on Public Contracts

Abstract

The paper focuses on the processing of the information available in government portals. Nowadays, in an e-Government, common citizens can have access to various contents, such as government decisions, government acts, court decisions, legislation and other information displayed on the official portals. However, the high volume of contents and the way the information is presented raises issues about their utility and validity to the community. The problem is how to process the available information and make it useful for citizens. In our work, we suggest an improvement of the present solutions by proposing a conceptual system to automate the processing of the information, analyze patterns, detect outliers, and send alerts about the deviations found. A preliminary analysis of the problem reveals that the type and the volume of the dataset are important factors to select the more appropriated algorithm in outlier
