South African advisory body recommends open source

"[Johannesburg, 9 September 2002] - Government is beefing up its investigations into open source software (OSS) with the release of a policy framework document by a high-level government advisory body.

The framework, released for public comment by the open source workgroup of the Government Information Officers' Council (GITO), recommends that government "explicitly" support the adoption of open source software as part of its e-government strategy. GITO includes all government CIOs, including provincial ones."
