Data Location


The government spending is managed by the general direction of the budget. All the spending is stored in a database with restricted access. The stored data is about all kind of spending including salary payment. So there is some sensible data that cannot be published. Anyone can do a request for government spending, specifying clearly the type of spending that he need. The general direction of the budget analyses the request and decides if it will give the data or not.
