I would like to have a StackExchange website dedicated and available with and for our organization people / resources only. Hence would be hosting it internally having at most functionality of current StackExchange website - I was going thru this question - StackExchange but I am not sure which is free to make use for my purpose - do they attract any fees any agreements which I currently I do not want to undergo?

Is there a free open source code for my request?

    Why would SE give their product away for free? – Catija Jan 21 '18 at 4:45

I'm afraid the official Stack Exchange engine is non-free (not open-sourced), according to this answer.

The SE engine is a kind of proprietary creation of Stack Overflow Inc., so it's their choice not to make it public. You can, however, request a Stack Overflow Enterprise for your private use. If you're unsatisfied with that, you can adopt a public engine (but not exactly the SE one) from the answer above.
