Survey Quantitative report
The OSEPA project has delivered a survey that assesses the level of
Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) uptake and identifies the
factors affecting its usage among European public administrations.
The survey was conducted through local online questionnaire versions in 20 countries
over a period of 10 weeks (24/10/2011 – 31/12/2011) and resulted into a total of 1088
valid responses from 19 countries. The majority of responses (64%) came from participants
with a technical background and role in their organisation while about 1 out of 3 respondents
(36%) had a non-technical/administrative profile. Survey results are summed in the following key findings:
- FOSS awareness and experience
- FOSS attitudes and policies
- FOSS benefits and barriers
- FOSS use and integration
The survey will be presented at the OSEPA conference in Jihlava, Czech Republic and at www.osepa.eu during project deliverables.
