What is ISA's policy towards FLOSS ?

The primary objective in this area is to promote the uptake of Open-Source Software in public administrations:

  • Encouraging Europe's public administrations to consider and assess the most advantageous IT solutions for their particular needs;
  • Reducing the costly replication of public sector software that already exists in similar form elsewhere, lowering the cost of eGovernment solutions and helping spread good practice throughout public administrations;
  • Ensuring that the market for IT solutions remains competitive;
  • Reducing ISA's own costs for application development and maintenance;
  • Helping ensure that Open-Source Software solutions can compete on a level playing field with proprietary solutions.
