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 dataset becomes available in the beginning of 2014 and it is available in three formats. The council claims they will update the data monthly but the latest data is about spending in March while it is already June, 2014. The content of the data does not include details about what the council actually buys but just a rough description like "construction". in this case the data is not published at the transaction level but more like at the item level.
