|Malaysian Government Interoperability Framework for Open Source Software (MyGIFOSS)|
Malaysian Government Interoperability Framework for Open Source Software (MyGIFOSS) contains information on open source software (OSS), open standards and technical specifications recommended for adoption in Malaysia. MyGIFOSS is prepared as a supplement to the Malaysian Government Interoperability Framework version 1.0 (MyGIF), August 2003.

It addresses issues concerning the use of OSS and proprietary software, integration of OSS with legacy systems, the exchange of information and data between heterogeneous systems, and compliance to published open standards where applicable. The emphasis for addressing the issues above is to ensure interoperability between systems and applications.
