Using R in/for Governments
Recently British government (by Office of National Statistics: ONS) just published their version of R manual for analysis of the government survey. The links to PDF and MS word versions of the manual including the R syntax are as below.
Note: The R syntax link is not working now. I am contacting the ONS, hope they will fix it soon.

For the US governemnt, there is an emerging awareness and recognition of the power of R in their Big Data Initiative. David Smith (Revolution Analytics) has summarised the application of R in the US governemnt in his post here.

Thanks a lot for letting me know.
I have contacted the ONS, hope they will fix it soon.
Please note that this guide is produced by the Economic and Social Data Service, ESDS, not the UK Government or the ONS. The correct link to the syntax is http://www.ccsr.ac.uk/esds/codemaps.r
I work for the State of California and am interested in the possibility of setting up an “R” server on a Windows 2008 Server for testing calls made from web pages (e.g. SharePoint) or report engines (e.g. SSRS) to incorporate embedded content. I have searched but haven’t yet found tutorials on setting this type of environment up. Its probably just due to my lack of understanding. Do you know of any links or who would be best to ask?
I think you may contact RStudio or Revolution Analytics. They are expert in this.
