China's National Government Bodies Adopt Legal Software, 12/21/11

Chang Xiaoxun, director of the Ministry of Commerce's Department of Market Supervision, said in a December 20 interview that China's national government agencies have basically completed the transition to genuine software products, a process expected to be completed by all government agencies nationwide by 2012. Chang said that government agency offices in cities at the prefecture level and above will be using legal software by June next year.

Chang recommended that government offices incorporate costs for standardizing the use of legal software products in their budgets, develop means to audit and supervise compliance both within their own offices as well as in state-owned enterprises under their purview. Once the transition is complete, the process will be expanded to cover companies and individuals.
