Open Source for America (OSA) promotes the use of open source in the U.S. federal government. This week the group announced the winners of its inaugural open source awards program.
The Executive Office of the President got the "Open Source Deployment in Government" honor for its WhiteHouse.gov Drupal platform migration.
"In October 2009, the Executive Office of the President migrated from a proprietary content management system to the open source Drupal platform in order to create a more flexible development environment that would support a more interactive White House web presence," the press release said.
OSA recognized the Open Source Digital Voting Foundation for its TrustTheVote project to create "a trustworthy voting system, suitable for use in government elections, which has been fully tested and is vastly more secure, usable and reliable than current products on the market."
