Records of actual (past) national government spending at a detailed transactional level; A database of contracts awarded or similar will not considered sufficient. This data category refers to detailed ongoing data on actual expenditure. Data submitted in this category should meet the following minimum criteria:
- Individual record of transactions.
- Date of the transactions
- Government office which had the transaction
- Name of vendor
- amount of the transaction
- Update on a monthly basis
The Government of Canada released a pilot sample dataset matching the criteria for this category, which has since been discontinued: http://data.gc.ca/data/en/dataset/2eed2fba-1626-4d2e-a511-389cc6b51ddf . The Government of Canada also has a tool for searching expenditure data, but data availability varies by ministry and department. Data is not month to month - it is aggregated by fiscal year - and it is not very detailed. Data cannot be downloaded. http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/ems-sgd/edb-bdd/index-eng.html
