Provisioning goal specific information to the team enhances efficiency of the team. Context awareness is very important to provide such relevant information. We propose a context aware information retrieval system that retrieves, and presents, information of high utility to a user - taking into account user's implicit need for information, capabilities of the user's access device, and other resource constraints of the user. The information retrieved assists users in achieving the collaboration goals. The proposed context-aware information retrieval system analyzes user's history to derive an enhanced "context" that indicates why user needs the information and what format of information is most useful for the user. The system uses this context to determine the information most relevant to the immediate goal of the user.
