Software ownership - Government should own Source Code

As contracts are currently written, private corporations retain ownership of the source code on custom software paid for by government. This makes it impossible to improve, fix or change software without using the same contractor.

Open and public Source software would allow for a contractor to create the original program, but allow for any federal worker to improve it at no additional cost.
