Software Evaluation Policy
The City and County of San Francisco
Committee on Information Technology (COIT) uses this policy to promote
informed, thorough and fair decision-making when evaluating software purchases on the
basis of their potential operational benefits and total cost of ownership.
This policy requires departments to consider open source software on an equal basis
to commercial software alternatives as part of a rigorous evaluation process that will
help meet operational requirements, reduce costs and reduce the amount of time needed
to bring applications into production.
