The IGAE website offers a monthly updated Government Spending excel file for 2015 Government Budget (actual), but this dataset doesn't matches the following evaluation criteria:

  • No Individual record of transactions, just aggregated figures.
  • Therefore, no date of the transactions.

That's why we marked a 'No' on the "Publicly available" question. The same organization is offering a more detailed spending excel file for the 2014 spending.
