The paper presents the feasibility of setting up a smart card based platform using free and open source that is card terminal vendor independent. This is important in accelerating smart card usage since lack of vendor independence has been a barrier to smart card adoption. The thesis also proves the feasibility of integrating free and open source technologies in enhancing e-government in the South Africa context. This is important because adopting free and open source software allows African government the opportunity to roll out online government services at lesser costs and be in full control of localization and adaptation
