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?

Ministry of Public Contracts collect these informations as there is an online public contract system (COLEPS), set up at the beginning of 2016, but the system is not available at this time. On the ministry of economy website, there is a journal of projects for the year, but there is no reporting of expenditures related to last year projects.
