Data Location

QA Reviewers comment Since last budget was in 2013, I don't think this dataset meets the minimum requirements. Initial submission was by Sadeek

Sadeek later comment: last data for 2014 on Presidency of the Council of Ministers website, pls take a look on the link i provided in my submission so the data meet the needed criteria . However the data for previous years can be fond at Ministry of finance website ( as i mentioned.

QA Reviewer Comment: It came up that data is available for this year, yet in textual format, and it wasn't clear at first if it is actually the whole budget .

Reviewer's notes - this does not meet the criteria since it does not specify sub departments expenditure. It seems from the websites that the data exist but is unavailable.

Reviewer comments

It seems that there is a budget, but the details about departments and sub-departments expenditure is not available.
