Government Budget 70% open

Kenya

What data is expected?

National government budget, that is the planned government expenditure for high-level activities, but not a fine-grained list of expenditure items. Open budget data allows for well-informed publics: showing where money is spent on, how public funds develop over time, and why certain activities are funded.

  • Enacted budget
  • Ongoing revenues / expenditures
  • Disaggregation by department, program, expenditure
  • None of the above
