Everyone is welcome to join the OASIS eGov MS and contribute to discussions on governmental and public administration requirements for e-business standardization. There are many benefits of joining the eGov MS.
How to join
eGov MS participants take advantage of membership in OASIS, the international standards consortium.
- If you are not already employed by an OASIS member organization*, you may join the eGov MS by joining OASIS and selecting eGov MS Supporting Entity on the Membership Agreement. After your organization joins, you and an unlimited number of your co-workers may participate in the eGov MS and in any other of the more than 60 OASIS Committtees.
- If you are already employed by an OASIS member organization*, your employer may elect to become an eGov Supporting Entity by having your Primary Representative notify Member Services. If your employer chooses not to become an eGov Supporting Entity, you may still participate in the Member Section as an Observer.
- If your employer is already an OASIS eGov Supporting Entity, you may personally participate in the eGov MS by sending an email to Member Services. As a participant, you will be added to the eGov Members mailing list and receive notifications of eGov activities. You will also become eligible to serve on the OASIS eGov Steering Committee.
Cost of membership
OASIS offers a wide range of membership options and dues designed to ensure that all those affected by open standards have a voice in their creation. It costs OASIS members nothing extra to join and participate in the eGov MS.
Organizations and individuals may also advance the work of OASIS eGov by underwriting specific activities. Donors may contribute any amount. Donations may be used for specific purposes, such as to defer meeting expenses, produce educational materials, hire program managers, etc. or to support general activities of the Member Section. An OASIS member who donates 5,500 USD or more annually (in addition to their OASIS Foundational or Sponsor-level dues) may have their organization's logo linked from every page of the Member Section's web site. See the Member Section Supporters program description for more details.
*Individual-level membership is also available for those unable to join through their employers.
