The data is available as part of an online registry. It includes information on the industrial/agricultural installations that emit pollution and the pollution generated from each one. The data is submitted to the EEA and can be downloaded as part of the full RDF dataset: http://prtr.ec.europa.eu/pgDownloadDataSet.aspx
The data is updated almost in real time as the election results are processed.
It is not available in bulk, but the information is in easily scrap-able htmls and sometimes available for download as CSV files.
The data was considered non-open as, although the Commission is working towards increasing the amount of machine-readable formats and the respect of interoperability, it does not clearly state what the reuse, modification and distribution conditions are (see here: http://results.cik.bg/pi2014/csv.html).

Format: Excel (also available as PDF and HTML though)
The data is available at the National Statistics Institute. It keeps data on quite a lot of aspects of economics and demographics. The data is however only in XLS format (when it is not as PDF) and in Bulgarian language. Bulk download is not possible. Historic data is limited. Despite a detailed data release schedule (see for ex. http://www.nsi.bg/bg/content/11918/basic-page/%D0%BA%D0%B0%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B4%D0%B0%D1%80-%D0%B7%D0%B0-%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%B7%D0%BF%D1%80%D0%BE%D1%81%D1%82%D1%80%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%B5%D0%BD%D0%B8%D0%B5-%D0%BD%D0%B0-%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B7%D1%83%D0%BB%D1%82%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%B8%D1%82%D0%B5-%D0%BE%D1%82-%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%B8%D1%81%D1%82%D0%B8%D1%87%D0%B5%D1%81%D0%BA%D0%B8%D1%82%D0%B5-%D0%B8%D0%B7%D1%81%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%B4%D0%B2%D0%B0%D0%BD%D0%B8%D1%8F), the data is not always up-to-date.
No change from 2013 was observed on this dataset.
The complete legislation is available mostly via a free web interface to proprietary legal information systems.
The State gazette provides pdfs (and some htmls) to the newly promulgated and amended laws and state ordinances. Also, RTF is an available format most of the time.
The laws are not subject to copyright in Bulgaria but the website does not carry a clear mention, thus preferrably error by stringency -- the data was considered non-open.
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.

Format: XML, WSDL
The data is publicly available via their website, but querties are restricted to single entities and captcha. Obtaining the full database costs about 15 000 EUR. The website carries the mention "Copyright" by the Institution, which -- adding to the price -- makes the data non-open. Lastly, as one has to pay to access the whole registrar, data is not considered available for download in bulk (although the bulk automated interface in XML format is available for 15 000 euro/year).
The data is mostly available for the capital Sofia. It's not in an open format, but there is a way to interface with the transportation company's website and is being actively used by several website offering route information and timetables. There are similar websites in other cities, but they mostly rely on static manually entered information on timetables and routes. There is a (mostly) crowdsourced) website allowing search of inter-city busses, but they don't offer data export. The state train company offers search for train routes, but also no export. The data could be scraped in some cases, but in others session information causes great difficulties. Whichever the website considered, the data is systematically the property of the institution that operates the website. It is unclear how other websites access this information but on the original websites, it is impossible to download the data in bulk and it is copyrighted by the respective institution.
There used to be an institute that compiles very precise maps, but it is now a for-profit company and sells the data: http://debian.fmi.uni-sofia.bg/~rajna/cartographia/products.html There's also a national cadastre that currently compiles data on land geology and ownership, but it hasn't covered the whole country yet: http://www.cadastre.bg/ Thus, the data was considered unavailable online and in bulk.
Spending data provided on a daily basis, but not at transactionnal level. There are some files available through the Ministry of Finances (http://www.minfin.bg/bg/page/19) but nothing tangible to introduce meaningful changes to the current assessment. As there is no clear copyright mention on the Ministry's website, data is considered non-open.
The data is available as a table inside a PDF document. It's a simple list of settlement names and postal codes. It is not geocoded.
No changes from 2013.
