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 government budget is made available via an interactive website (and also as a printed version). The budget can be regarded as laws and should therefore be exempt from copyright but as there is no explicit statement on copyrigh exemption the budget cannot be regarded as openly licensed.

Reviewer comments

Accepting with addition of clarification of why the budget is not openly licensed.
