Acquisition and reuse of software for the Public Administration

Articles 68 and 69 of the Italian Codice dell’Amministrazione Digitale discipline how a Public Administration can acquire software and establish the obligation to release the software developed or commissioned with an open license.

The Guidelines for Sotware Acquisition and Reuse issued by the Agenzia per l’Italia Digitale (currently being published in Gazzetta Ufficiale) describe such process in detail.

Below you’ll find instructions for acquiring software and for publishing the software developed by your organization.
