Polish National Interoperability Framework promotes Open Standards

Filed under
OSS

Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs, responsible for National Computerization project is currently working on National Interoperability Framework. The framework more or less follows the general ideas of the European document, but there are major differences, especially concerning the key issue for the FLOSS community — the attitude to open-source software.

Open source software

The European framework recommends the usage of open source software directly:

Open Source Software (OSS) tends to use and help define open standards and publicly available specifications. OSS products are, by their nature, publicly available specifications, and the availability of their source code promotes open, democratic debate around the specifications, making them both more robust and interoperable. As such, OSS corresponds to the objectives of this Framework and should be assessed and considered favorably alongside proprietary alternatives

The Polish draft however does not even mention this issue. Instead the term “technical independence” is used which basically means that no software should be favored (neither open source nor proprietary).
