The remit of this program is to distill the key mechanics of the process systems used for FOSS development, with a view to understanding how it can be utilised for other organisational and social benefits. FOSS features a unique blend of voluntary activity, distributed workforce patterns and software development practices that offers new insights into organisational management. These could be applied to many areas for considerable benefit, such as: eliminating bureaucracy, particularly in areas like government administration, distribution of investment and funding capital.

Projects sought under this strategic program including research and development of best practices, reports and tools  to understnd this process as well as the application to non-foss based projects.
