Records of actual (past) municipal spending at a detailed transactional level, for example, at the level of month to month expenditure on specific items (usually this means individual records of spending amounts at a fairly granular level - e.g. $5-50k rather than at the $1m+ level). (Note: a database of contracts awarded or similar is not considered sufficient. This data category refers to detailed ongoing data on actual expenditure)

Data Location


The expenditure information is easily accesible throught the "Transparency" item in the Government's website. Once entering there, the user can access to the expenditure section, where the user can choose the week he/she is looking for, and consult the information needed. However, the information is not available in reusable formats, so it can't be processed and re-used by anyone. Even thoug the information is easily accesible, it is very complex and if there is anyone who would like to use it for its own purposes, would need extra work to extract what he/she needs and analyze its complexity.
