Report on: Open standards in the public sector

Report on this week's Round Table discussion held under the banner of the OpenForum Academy focussed on the importance of open standards in public sector IT procurement.

This Round Table discussion held under the banner of the OpenForum Academy focussed on the importance of open standards in public sector IT procurement. Dr Laura DeNardis from Yale Law School presented her as yet unpublished paper on the subject, which served as a starting point for a lively debate among the 40 attendees.

Her paper goes beyond the social, economic and innovative impacts of open standards in the public sector. It also examined the necessary action needed to deliver interoperability between government agencies and between governments and their citizens.
