Process starts to select open standards for government documents – via GOV.UK

TechBeast - There appears to be a window of opportunity to tempt the UK Government away from its precious Microsoft Office document formats and onto something more open and available to users of 3rd-party office suites, as well as ensure that documents can be read for decades to come.

There doesn’t appear to be a consultation as such, but they do appear to be inviting suggestions.

As well as making it easier for citizens to access and work with the information that government publishes, open document formats will enable users in government departments to operate more efficiently by sharing documents and working on them together.
