The Technical Action Committee’s (TAC) primary purpose is to determine how to build our software products the right way.

This committee is responsible for:

  • Defining the overall technical and system architecture.
  • Reviewing and vetting community technical priorities and projects for technical feasibility and viability
  • Maintaining the technical roadmap
  • Setting community technical standards for code quality, contributions, and performance
  • Encouraging and reviewing contributions for inclusion in core OpenMRS technical products
  • Providing feedback on technical approaches to OpenMRS projects, implementations, and distributions as requested

Who is involved?

Any community member is welcome to participate in and contribute to Technical Action Committee discussions, whether this is during the TAC's weekly meeting or on Talk. Community members who demonstrate a high level of commitment by actively contributing to the TAC will become a core member with decision making authority. Every two years, we expect up to 5 core members to affirm their commitment to serving on this committee.
