Now is this not intersting.
Qinetiq (apparently to be pronounced kinetic) seems to be the most round 
about way to conduct this simple survey and their site is full of interesting 
Hopefully some good comes out of this.

Maybe AFFS could securely gather data to be presented to government offices, 
in a down to earth way in the future? 
(through which I will be more than happy to submit my humble commercial 
venture too)

Copy and better the 'stuctured questionaire'  ;-)  for free beer.

Subject: Request for information on Open Source - Office of Government
Commerce Contract

Message: QinetiQ have recently won a contract from the Office of
Government Commerce (OGC), which co-ordinates procurement for the UK
Government, to look into case studies on the experiences of
organisations that have adopted Open Source products. We are
interested in looking at an Office automation roll-out, a Linux
desktop roll-out and a database migration using PostgreSQL.  We are
currently seeking organisations that would be willing to be involved.
This will take the form of a structured questionnaire, supplemented by
an interview either in person or by telephone.  I would be grateful if
organisations would consider whether they are willing to be involved
and let me know as soon as possible. If you agree to be involved, the
OGC have granted permission for you to use the fact that you offered
help in a case study affecting Government policy for your own ends. We
will be interested in involving a user, an implementer and the
implementer’s manager, so names and contact details of appropriate
people in your organisation would be very useful. Questionnaires and
interviews will take place in January/early February.  I look forward
to receiving any replies.
