Abstract: Open source software (OSS) has gained prominence worldwide, largely due to cost savings and security considerations. This has caused a change in the IT sector and has led to the migration of desktops from proprietary to OSS. The problem for organisations wanting to adopt OSS is the difficulty in planning and implementation of migration projects, with migration processes often being designed from scratch. Process reference models (PRMs) are reusable process model structures. They capture the common activities, roles and resources of processes in a particular environment and can be reused in different environments. One of the advantages of PRMs is that they enable Design by Reuse, alleviating the need to redesign processes. PRMs can improve the planning and execution of OSS projects. To develop PRMs for OSS migration projects, the CSIR OSS migration project (Vula) was studied, and its process models were captured using the standard process notation IDEF0
