Recent SERPRO tenders have already encouraged participation by small
FLOSS regional companies, as well as Debian support services.
(Reasoning: presumably small companies were allowed before, but could
not handle the size of tenders; I think it's "participation by", not

SERPRO has created a FLOSS Strategic Coordinator (CESOL), in part to
assist co-operation between FLOSS communities and other federal
government agencies, using the www.softwarelivre.gov.br website and
the CISL meetings. SERPRO and other Brazilian government agencies
have already started to release some code as free software.
(Reasoning: clarify this is only one aim of CESOL; include examples of
how it will assist; reword final sentence to include SERPRO and make
clear this is about free software and not merely open code. I assume
that CISL is defined earlier in the text.)
