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

Data Location


The IGAE website offers a monthly updated Government Spending excel file for 2015 Government Budget (actual), but this dataset doesn't matches the following evaluation criteria:

  • No Individual record of transactions, just aggregated figures.
  • Therefore, no date of the transactions.

That's why we marked a 'No' on the "Publicly available" question. The same organization is offering a more detailed spending excel file for the 2014 spending.
