The organisation responsible for the UK government’s procurement policy has opted for Linux to underpin its new online purchasing system.

The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) hopes the system will allow public sector bodies to buy products more quickly, more easily and more cost effectively.

Called Purchase & Pay, the Linux-based system is being operated by only for the Department of Work & Pensions (DWP). It is currently used for the purchase of printed forms, stationery and associated items but in the long term is likely to encompass a much wider range of goods and services.
