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.

Proposed Expenditure data can be found in bulk and machine readable formate here -
