Government Spending 0% open


What data is expected?

Records of actual (past) national government spending at a detailed transactional level. Data must display ongoing expenditure, including transactions and subsidies. A database of contracts awarded or similar will not be considered sufficient. Open spending data shows whether public money is efficiently and effectively used. It helps to understand spending patterns, and to display corruption, misuse, and waste. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

  • Individual record of transactions
  • Government office which had the transaction
  • Date of transaction
  • Name of vendor
  • Amount of the transaction

How open is the data?

Public spending data are collected and stored at transactional level on the financial information system named CHORUS. However, the data is not available online as, according to the Etalab open data mission, the database is covered by commercial and statistical secrets.
