macguys writes "I work for a government agency that is about to put out an RFP for software to support the business of the agency. There are several commercial products which would probably meet the needs of the agency. There are also several open source options. I'd like to consider open source, but don't have a clue on how I can include them. While the commercial vendors have staff to respond to an RFP, for open source software, there is no one to package a response. Ideas?"
