The value of open source in government.

What is the value of Open Source in government? Is it possible to adopt OSS polices in our Government anyway? “FOSS advocates” argue that OSS tools and technologies help to reduce overall costs of running an  institution. Is this possible? Has any one done it? Are there examples of governments that are going  the “FOSS” Way? The answer is YES!
