Abstract:The use of electronic contracts is emerging as a way to improve the efficiency of contracting processes. Electronic contracts are, however, often used as a direct replacement for traditional paper contracts ¿ which we call shallow e-contracting. Consequently, business processes in general and con-tracting processes in particular do not change much through the use of elec-tronic contracts. New business scenarios caused by e-business developments, however, do require new contracting paradigms in which the use of electronic contracts becomes an essential element to obtain a radical paradigm shift in contractual business relations ¿ which we call deep e-contracting. In this posi-tion paper, we explore these new paradigms. We link the paradigms to ex-changed values described in e-contracts to obtain a mapping from business requirements. We next map the paradigms to contracting activities. Finally, we map the activities to information technology required for their automated sup-port. Based on the paradigms and mappings, this paper provides a concise framework for the exploration of deep e-contracting.
