Submission + - Cabinet Office publishes open source procurement t (theregister.co.uk)

similar_name writes: From the Register "The Cabinet Office has published an open source procurement toolkit for the public sector on its website.

It said the purpose is to ensure that there is a level playing field for open source and proprietary software and that some of the myths associated with open source are dispelled. The toolkit includes six documents:
  • All About Open Source – including FAQs;
  • ICT Advice Note — Procurement of Open Source;
  • Procurement Policy Note on Open Source;
  • OSS Options; Total Cost of Ownership;
  • CESG Guidance on Open Source (this site will only open for users who have previously registered with a .gsi.gov.uk email address).
