The Maturity Model for Open Source Implementation in Public Administrations (Mmossipa) assesses the readiness of public sector organisations for using free and open source software.
The two focal points of the Opengov portal are open government and public sector modernisation. It aims to help public administrations face mounting challenges, including budgetary pressures following the financial crises and a growing lack of trust in public administration.
ePractice is a community for eGovernment professionals, and eInclusion and eHealth practitioners. The community empowers users to discuss and influence open government, policy-making and the way in which public administrations operate and deliver services.
The Open Source Observatory is a community for exchanging news, experiences and best practices around open source solutions for use in public administrations. We help you find open source software made available by other public administrations, and solve issues related to development.
