Data Location


The national transactional spending data is not available but aggregated results are available and very fresh which indicates the data exists and is digital.

Procurement data (which is a big subset of national spending data but not counted as part of this dataset) is however available as open data. It can be downloaded in bulk from: /interfaz-consultas-publicaciones.

XML files in a dataset in Uruguay's CKAN instace at correspond to the codelists used in the actual data.
