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 Department of Budget and Management provides detailed information on the budget. Budget is presented by department/agency, sector and certain projects.

Data is offered in a non-machine readable format (PDF). It also can't be downloaded in bulk (only one section of the budget at a time).

Data is presented timely - current information is of 2015.

There is not explicit license on the website, therefore the data is not compliant with the open definition.

Reviewer comments

It would be good to see data on budget ammendments as well (after the Department of Budget submits it to Congress and Senate for approval) - to see who revised what and what was revised
