Abstract

This paper is intended as an introduction to the concept of "open source government." It presents the late as it draws from the open source software development. Starting from the identification of the open source (OS) model in a new generation of R&D management, the main objective is to examine the feasibility of introducing innovations based on this new production model in public administration. In this regard, we argue that open source (OS) can become a modus operandi for the continuation of the processes of administrative decentralization and streamlining the exchange of information between suppliers and users of public services.

Keywords: open source government, open source software, open source model, generation of R&D management, administrative decentralization

JEL Classification: D73, L98
