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


Data could be more granular. I sent a question to the Dept. of Finance regarding the availability of the data in a bulk download and did not receive an answer. I will therefore leave it as a NO.

Reviewer comments

I have verified the submission, requested information which I did not receive, and added some contextual information. Additional information was provided but the submission responses did not change from last year.
