Many government entities use Adobe Coldfusion for web applications. Consider the use of open-source cfml engines (Railo, Blue Dragon) for lower priority development and deployment. This model can be extended to database servers as well: SQL Server to MySql for instance. I would not recommend a complete migration. I only suggest off-loading non-critical development.
