No Beans for "Free" Stuff

One big problem that I have encountered is the perception of the bean-counters. Bean counters will not fork over beans for something that is available for "free". Supporting OSS developers in the absence of explicit contracts is not something A/P understands and does not show up well in accounting audits. I see no easy solution here.
