Government Budget 100% open

New Zealand

What data is expected?

National government budget at a high level, that is the planned government expenditure for the upcoming year, and not the actual expenditure. Open budget data allows for well-informed publics: showing where money is spent on, how public funds develop over time, and why certain activities are funded. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

  • Budget per government department
  • Budget per sub-department
  • Descriptions for budget sections

How open is the data?

I have been conservative with my response to B9 as I do not personally download this machine-readable data.
Data location - "This is the home page for Budget 2016 for the Government of New Zealand. ... Most of these documents are tabled in Parliament by the Minister of Finance on Budget Day, 26 May 2016. " - The 2016 data and overviw - Revenue XLS - Expenditure XLS
