In case you hadn’t heard, Google Apps is taking on government organizations. I found this on socaltech.com:
LA Goes Live With Google
The City of Los Angeles has gone live with Google’s cloud software suite,
Google Apps, Google said Monday. Google won the a $7.2M contract with the
city back in October for email service. Google said that 34,000 Los
Angeles city employees will gain access to Google Apps for email and other
collaboration starting yesterday. The move to Google came after a intense
battle between Google and Microsoft for the contract.
