This way, based in the classification of the information presented by Moresi (2000), critical, minimal and potential information, the purpose of this survey was to analyze the quality of information in the bidding processes to hiring engineering works at Universidade Estadual de Londrina (UEL). The methodological procedures were accomplished in two phases: (i) documental research and (ii) open questionnaire. The main results of the survey indicate the value of minimal information is about management information, and this was found in the bidding processes registration and identification data; the critics, that offers security to the actions with less imperfection, was found in many parts of the processes, with emphasis in the announcement, and the potential information, reputable as competitive edge, was used in selecting the winning firm, upon analysis of the presented proposal. The results of this survey provided the opportunity of discovery of aspects related to: (a) work experience - in front of the importance of ability to discern among the information which is more appropriate in the decision making process at hand; (b) the efficiency in the use, storage and information disposal, processes that lead one to find possible faults, flaws or divergent information, which have obstructed the improvement of work activities, with production of imperfect tasks that need modification in the course of their execution.
