National government budget at a high level. This category is looking at budgets, or the planned government expenditure for the upcoming year, and not the actual expenditure. To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • Planned budget divided by government department and sub-department
  • Updated once a year.
  • The budget should include descriptions regarding the different budget sections.

Data Location


The budget most of all public institutions is accessible and downloadable in the Contraloría General de la República (CGR) Website via an interface as a CSV file. Nevertheless the system is not friendly and to find the detailed budget is complicated and for some institutions is not available. The Central Goverment Budget it is also available in the Ministry of Finance website but in a PDF format.
