We help open source projects for public organizations to become successful, build sustainable communities around them and create a thriving public open source ecosystem.

Our mission is to enable public-purpose software and policy that is open and collaborative.

We do this through ecosystem level codebase stewardship of both software and civic code, enabling collaboration and reuse at scale.

Information and processes

The About site is home to all of our staff information, decision-making rules and processes. It is our staff manual that can be developed collaboratively with the community and reused by everyone.
