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?

There is no data available on day-to-day spending with individual record of transactions and complete informationa about it. According to IBP's Open Budget Survey the data exists (there is a year end report). Portugal government claims that they have reformed management of public accounts but the link where the data was acessible in 2015 is no longer available and no other place was found with the information: . Information available in INE only until the year 2011.
