Provide a forum for governments internationally to voice their needs and requirements with respect to XML-based standards which can:
be handed off to relevant OASIS TCs if they exist, or,
cause the formation of new TCs, or SCs of this TC, for needs that are not currently addressed, or,
cause the formation of Joint Committees within OASIS, or
cause the formation of liaisons with other international standards bodies.
Provide a mechanism for the creation of best practice documents relative to the adoption of OASIS specifications/standards and other related standards within Governments internationally;
Promote the adoption of OASIS specifications/standards within Governments which could include the creation of implementation-oriented pilot projects to involve software vendors and participating government agencies to demonstrate the use of OASIS specifications/standards;
Work with other OASIS channels and other international standards bodies' channels (e.g. XML.org for schema registry and/or information portal), to act as a clearinghouse of information related to applicable specifications/standards as well as activities and projects being conducted by Governments in the adoption of XML-based systems and standards.
