"The purpose of the study, which was conducted with the cooperation of several Swedish government agencies, was to provide a guideline for how public administrations and agencies should relate to open source and free software. "

"Procurement of software shall therefore evaluate open software as well as commercial solutions, to provide better competition in the market."
