Open source part of Bulgarian eGovernment tender requirements

The Bulgarian government has added open source as a requirement to its 'Preliminary criteria for the eligibility of eGovernment projects'. The document states that: all rights with regard to the interface design and the source code of the project must be transferred from the contractor to the contracting party; the source code developed for the project must be made publicly available in an online Revision Control System during development; for all projects, it should be explored whether the whole or part (i.e. libraries, packages, modules) of the software can be based on existing open source software; if it is financially justified, using open source is the preferred approach; to facilitate the use of the online Revision Control System and to guarantee the real-time availability of the latest version of the source code, the system should function as the central and original repository.
