The following two reports may be of interest to list members (OSHCA mailing 
list subscribers can ignore, as they have already had this info.).
Neither are primarily health-oriented reports, but they are of general 
interest, I think, to members of the group.


OSS Watch conducted a study of UK Further Education and Higher Education 
institutions between 2 October 2003 and 21 November 2003, looking at their 
attitudes and policies towards open source software. The purpose of this 
work was to inform the work plan of the service for 2004 and 2005, and 
provide a sound basis for understanding the issues.
The main part of the study was a survey of IT managers. This investigated 
the current state of participation in free and open source software both in 
terms of projects developing such software and institutional deployment of 
such software.

Paul Dravis whom some of you likely met at the Washington egovos meeting last
spring was a principal in developing this report for the World Bank

Cheers, Peter Murray
