Government Budget 70% open

Mauritius

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

How open is the data?

Worth highlighting that the national open data portal was launched in April 2018, as a result the data upload isn't yet completed. However, via the ministry of finance website, one can be able to download (as MS Word, Excel and PDF) national budget data from year 2002.
