Data Location


As part of the budget, it is possible to find data on total expenditure and expenditure for the current year. Data are related to individual sectors. There is no detailed transactions on a monthly basis.

Given there are no detailed monthly transactions available this dataset needs to be marked as not publicly available (but the data seems to be available and digital which is needed to produce the aggregated data).
