About

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.

Revision: The originally proposed link pointed to a bunch of very different files including non budget ones, and only reflected the government's intended budget, before it was discussed and largely modified by the parliament (the data is from october 14th 2014, whereas the discussion lasted until the end of december : http://www.assemblee-nationale.fr/14/dossiers/loi_finances_2015.asp ).

It seems better to reference data published by the Cour des Comptes which corresponds to the actual final government budget, programme by programme, published as a whole : https://www.data.gouv.fr/fr/datasets/budget-de-letat-exercice-2014/

The data available at the SPIR portal 1 is provided with low granular level, it not seems to be complete but it is up-to-date and well formatted. It is also easy to share. Howerver, it only works on Firefox.

There is another tools maintained by the Ministerio de Hacienda, called the Boost database [3] that contains budget information from 2003 until 2014.

About the license, the Paraguayan FOI law[3], and the presidential decree that regulares this law [4] establishes an open license for the budget data.

The data is available since 2014 in CSV and XML. The data asset is also available on Finnish data portal Avoindata.fi.

On the page ( http://budjetti.vm.fi/indox/index.jsp ) data is available in PDF and HTML but not in CSV, XLS or neither through API. The page is hosted by Ministry of Finance. The main datasets are the ones Government proposes to the Parliament. The Parliament amends the budget perioidically. See the discussion in Finnish: http://avoindata.net/245/onko-valtion-budjettidata-saatavilla-avoimena-ja-milloin

The government budget dataset is available on the Open Fiscal Data site managed by the Ministry of Strategy and Finance of the Republic of Korea. The dataset is available in bulk, in various formats including XML, JSON, Excel, CSV, and Text. The site also provides Web APIs which can be used to harness data programatically on the Web.

Actually, this dataset does not include descriptions regarding the different budget sections, but the budget in the dataset is well divided by government departments, ledgers, accounts, sectors, parts, programs, and sub-programs so general citizens can easily understand where the money goes without explicit descriptions. In this regards, I think the dataset meets the minimum criteria of the dataset definition.

Hong Kong released its budget plans in CSV format for the first time this year. The full descriptions for spending are still held in PDF format in the 'Budget Speech' documents: http://www.budget.gov.hk/2015/eng/speech.html

Budget commitments are described in terms of policy areas, but there is a document that links policy area to government departments. The expenditure plans in the CSV format do include a fairly detailed breakdown of 'large' projects that includes past and future expenditure.

Budgets for years 2010 - 2015 are available. The current budget is published in 3 phases (estimates, changes, actual expenditure) and updated quaterly.

Czech national budget for 2016 has not been approved by the parliament and therefore not published (not even a framework).

The license says, that data can be shared freely and integrated into computer programs or databases and other works. However, it also mentions, that the data can't be edited - I think this is just unfortunate definition, that means that the cannot be used in a misleading way, but I'm not 100% sure about it.

Current budget is available at http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/. Formal budget documents are in PDF format and are on http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/Overview. Machine-readable data in Excel and CSV files can be found in the supplemental material at http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/Supplemental.

Furthermore, the Whitehouse.gov copyright notice states all material is CC-By (see http://www.whitehouse.gov/copyright).

Bulk: Whilst the data is split across multiple files there is a good core set of data in the "Public Budget Database" which consists of only 3 substantial CSV files. As such, have marked Bulk as "Yes"

  • Machine-readable: whilst formal budget is PDF we believe that all relevant data is contained in the Excel and CSV files so Machine-readable is "Yes" (note also that the CSV files are well formatted)

  • Older budgets: the OMB budget site only contains data for the latest budget with past budgets available on the GPO website at: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/browse/collectionGPO.action?collectionCode=BUDGET. The GPO site only provides PDFs. However, the OMB site does contain a historical tables section at http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/Historicals and the Public Budget Database contains data back to 1962.

2015 - The budget breakdown can be found under PESA- Public Expenditure Statistical Analyses . However, it is not clear if one can see budget breakdown for sub-departments. Moreover, it was hard to find the dataset, and it was not available on data.gov.uk, but on the gov.uk website. In addition, there was no link from the treasury webpage to this dataset.

All the data is one place, but it would be better if it was in one spreadsheet.

The budget book can be find under the name Main Supply Estimates 2015 to 2016, and it is not publish in a Machine readable format, nor it does not linked from the treasury website.

The annual budget is published in Arabic in the Official Gazette and can be accessed from the website of the Ministry of Finances and the website of the Ministry of Legal Affairs. The budget provides a sector and department level breakdown of estimated expenses and profits. The latest budget documents (2014 and 2015) are only found as PDF files, while previous documents are available in XLS format.

The Annual Budget is issued through a Royal Decree, which is exempt from copyright protection and is there available freely to use, reuse, or to distribute. This is confirmed in Article 4(A) of the Omani Copyright Law (found here: http://www.wipo.int/wipolex/en/text.jsp?file_id=180949 )

Additionally, the same budget document in PDF format could be downloaded from the website of the Ministry of Legal Affairs (Example: http://www.mola.gov.om/Download.aspx?Path=royal/1-2015.pdf ) and the terms and conditions of the website of the Ministry of Legal Affairs clearly state that:

"The website of the Ministry of Legal Affairs contains official documents such as Royal Decrees and Decisions and which are considered part of the public domain excluded from copyright protection and which may be reproduced, republished, and used without restrictions." (Taken from http://www.mola.gov.om/eng/websitepolicy.aspx )

Note: Arabic is the only official language in Oman and like majority of websites of the Omani government, the English sections of websites are rarely updated and information here is based on the Arabic content.

The Ministry of Finance is responsible for the annual budget ( http://www.mof.gov.ae/ ), however, the website does not publish the budget.

The annual budget is issued as a Federation Law which is published in the Official Gazette of the UAE. ( http://www.alittihad.ae/details.php?id=36283&y=2015 ) The Official Gazette can be purchased from the Ministry of Justice and is not available on the internet. ( https://gazette.moj.gov.ae/Introduction.aspx )

Reviewer's Comment: I was able to find the data on the website for the Ministry of Finance on its Open Data section, it is available for online for free. It is in PDF and XLS format, though not openly licensed. Data is available both as balance and as functional (departments). The balance has expenses as ongoing expenses and assets, each with sub categories. The descriptions provided are very limited though. http://www.mof.gov.ae/Ar/OpenData/Pages/default.aspx

No explicit notice or information has been found explaining the terms of use of the data set.

QA comment - change to bulk, because the files are available under the same link (as we accepted in other countries). The data does not have a license or any terms of use. i have changed it to now.

The Budget law is promulgated in the State gazette, so it is in the public domain. The PDF is also published on the Ministry of Finances website (see here for 2015: http://www.minfin.bg/bg/page/851).

The consolidated budget framework is published on the Finances ministry website, usually as an Excel generated PDF. The available Excel sheets for 2015 are different amendments but their aim is unclear.

Data has been considered unavailable in bulk because each file, be it in machine-readable format or no, has to be downloaded individually. Also, the data has been considered available for free as anyone can access the files and download them from the Ministry's website.

Reviewer's note - Although each excel file needs to be downloaded individually,it is all in one webpage, and we consider that as bulk. For the future, it would be better if all the data was in one spreadsheet.

The state budget is published as soon as it is approved by the Parliament on a special page maintained by the Ministry of Public Finance. The budget is presented as a set of PDF documents, and, starting with 2014, also in XML format (scroll down to the bottom of the budget page for the link).

However, the XML format does not include the budget rectifications, which are only available in separate PDF files. Also, there is no updated version of the budget after rectifications, which means that one should take the provisions from the rectification bills and apply them to the original budget.

The data are under the Copyright of the Ministerul Finantelor Publice -DGTI but there is no reference to a licence nor terms of use.

https://www.bmf.gv.at/budget/das-budget/budget-2014-2015.html provides links to the budgets for 2014 and 2015 in PDF files. Numerous relevant datasets with various statistics and payments are available as XLS files, however there appears to be no machine readable file with all data from the budget. More than a dozen XLS files are available for download, most of them with tens of worksheets, but all this data combined still does not appear to cover all the data contained in the PDF files of the budgets. The Ministry of Finance appears to claim a Copyright on all content on its website.

The Austrian Parliament has a department for budget analysis. The analysis and data produced by this department is only available online, mostly as PDF and DOCX files, a couple of relevant XLS files are available as well, but no fully machine-readable budget data set (http://www.parlament.gv.at/PAKT/BUDG/Budget/).

Furthermore more granular data of regions and cities and communities are available for lots of regions in Austria; and the project Offener Haushalt opens up budget data of communities and regions etc, see: https://www.offenerhaushalt.at/

Data could be more granular. I sent a question to the Dept. of Finance regarding the availability of the data in a bulk download and did not receive an answer. I will therefore leave it as a NO.

Tajikistan is member to Open Budget Initiative. The first and last assessment was conducted in 2012, which found OBI as 17%. Though it is low in rank, it is encouraging that OBI-oriented actions have been taken in the level of the Ministry.

As ODRA interviewees believe the published information public data or information. However, there is no clear statement about intellectual property rights attached to the government information. There is also no clear statement for the terms and conditions of reuse, e.g. license.

The General Accounting Office is responsible for the dissemination and publicity of the Annual Budget. Unfortunately, the General Accounting office has chosen to publish the related data in formats, which essentially prevents further use of this information by the public. The annual budget is published as unstructured PDF documents, while the internal breakdown formations change almost every year. This makes comparisons of actual spending with the budget , particularly difficult. Some experimental projects have been made using data scraping techniques , however, for a reliable and efficient solution the General Accounting Office should re-evaluate the data publishing policies applied.

There is evidence that Sudan has an annual budget that is prepared in a formal format and gets approved by the Cabinet ( http://www.sudan.gov.sd/index.php/ar/events/details/1/789/%D9%85%D8%AC%D9%84%D8%B3-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%88%D8%B2%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%A1-%D9%8A%D8%AC%D9%8A%D8%B2-%D9%85%D8%B4%D8%B1%D9%88%D8%B9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%B2%D9%86%D8%A9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%A7%D9%85%D8%A9-%D9%84%D9%84%D8%B9%D8%A7%D9%85-2015%D9%85#.VgaVFo9Viko ), but it could not be determined in what format it is available or if available online at all. The website of the Ministry of Finance of Sudan could not be found and the website of the Central Bank of Sudan ( http://www.cbos.gov.sd/ ) is offline.

Budgets are supposed to be found here, http://www.mof.gov.sd/doc_view... but links not working.

Sadeek: The data published on web pages. The data for 2013 and previous years can be fond at Ministry of finance website (http://www.syrianfinance.gov.sy/arabic/budget/q-and-a.html).

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 www.pministry.gov.sy/contents/... so the data meet the needed criteria . However the data for previous years can be fond at Ministry of finance website (http://www.syrianfinance.gov.s... 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.

Reviewers comment: It appears that the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning offers budget data at general level (http://www.finance.gov.bw/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=89&catid=23&Itemid=109), where pdf-downloads are available. The numbers are divided by sectors, but not very granular and does not contain sub department level.

However, it does not have detailed expenditure for sub-departments. It seems like the data does exist but its not available.

The annual budget can be downloaded from the website of the Ministry of Finance ( http://www.mof.gov.bh/arb/categorylist.asp?ctype=budget ). The report available provides review and expediter with a department level breakdown. The website provides a link for downloading the report in Excel or PDF formats, but currently only the PDF link works.

The Ministry of Finance website has an archive for previous years going back to 2003.

Reviewer's note - data is available only in department level. This does not meet the criteria for the budget data. It seems as the data exist but it in not available to the public.
