And it further consolidates its commitment to the rational use of public resources by undertaking to reuse existing ones, in order to reduce the associated costs and for those resources to be able to be used in processes that contribute real value added to public management.

In particular, common guidelines area established regarding the terms and conditions of use applicable to the acquisition, development, maintenance, configuration and evolution of any source code of computer applications, and to its openness.
