There is no data available on day-to-day spending, i.e. transactional spending.

According to IBP's Open Budget Survey the data exists (there is a year end report) but the Open Budget Library holds the 2012 version of the year end report. That's more than 2 fiscal periods ago so we cannot say that the data exists.

Although the Portugal government claims that they have reformed management of public accounts: (there is however no evidence of this being done now).
