CAMSS provides a comprehensive method to assist the assessment of ICT standards and specifications. CAMSS provides a method, it does not itself select standards. The CAMSS method aims to achieve interoperability and avoiding vendor lock-ins. CAMSS criteria evaluate (among other things) the openness of standards and specifications. The CAMSS tools aim also to be flexible and can be adapted to suit the needs of an individual Member State (e.g. by adding/selecting the most relevant criteria, selecting knock-out criteria, etc.).
