This website mentions that there are spending reports but they are not available on the website and there is no mention of whether it is digital or not:

This is confirmed by IBP's Open Budget Survey which says the year end report exists. The Open Budget Library has a record of the 2013 year end report which indicates that the data exists but is perhaps not fully digital.
