The open source world is very familiar with the concept of a corporate Open Source Program Office or OSPO. There is now a growing number of governments, municipalities and universities who have also identified significant benefits of establishing an OSPO. However, public sector OSPOs tend to have a different set of priorities and services to Corporate OSPOs.
