English term or phrase:panel contract
At the state level, one of the most closely watched open-source initiatives is in New South Wales. The government recently announced a two-year contract with a "panel" of Linux suppliers from which public agencies will be able to procure software, training, systems integration services and support under terms and pricing the state has negotiated.
Elizabeth Gordon-Werner, manager of strategic projects in the office of the government CIO for the New South Wales Department of Commerce, says the request to do the "panel contract" came from government agencies, but the jury's out on whether it will spur greater adoption of Linux.
