ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Find that Procurement Contracts are sorted as alphanumeric, not numeric. Oracle Generates procurement contracts as numeric.

If you have contract numbers as 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11

This will sort as follows

1,10,11,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

This should be sorted as 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Expectation is to be sorted as numeric.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Contracts Workbench admin responsibility
2. Contracts >> Contracts
3. Advanced Search
4. Enter Operating Unit, Currency
5. Click on Go
Contract numbers are returned in sorted as alphanumeric
