    Abstract

    This paper presents the findings of a survey of e-business in Bulgaria. The survey was done which was conducted for the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction (CIB). CIB Task Group TG83 was founded in 2011 to investigate and promote the area of E-Business in construction. The survey was conducted in a variety of countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada, Ghana, Australia, and Sri Lanka. The commission was extended to include Bulgaria. An on-line standard survey was used in each of the countries listed. A survey of Bulgarian Construction Chamber Companies produced 55 full responses to the survey. The findings show that Bulgaria uses e-business less than the United Kingdom. This means, however, that by adopting e-business Bulgarian companies have more potential to achieve efficiencies as a result of its adoption. The paper identifies ways in which Bulgarian companies can achieve more efficient workflows and put into place strategies for embedment. Additional use of facilities management, estimating and sub-contracting software and cloud based systems has the potential to improve Bulgarian construction organisations efficiency and produce cost, time and quality savings.???????? ????????? ???????? ?? ?????????? ?? ?-??????? ? ????????. ???????????? ? ????????? ?? ???-?????????? ????? ?? ??????????? ? ???????? ? ???????? ? ?????????????
