A series of internal HM Government (HMG) events have been organized by the UK Home Office and the BCS Open Source SG (OSSG) http://ossg.bcs.org/ to create greater awareness of Open Source software amongst UK Government Civil Servants.

Feedback from the first two events (held so far at the time of writing) on 21st February 2012 and 20th March 2012 indicates a positive reception to the topics covered. Speakers look to have been fully sourced for events 3,4, and 5. The composition of speakers for Event 6 is yet to be decided, which will seek to cover solid examples of Open Source Software use transferable to HMG or ideally already being used somewhere within HMG.

There is discussion taking place within the Home Office and HMG about the possibility of taking this series events with OSSG further through the use of a Roadshow across the various regions.
