Open Budget

Description / Objectives

To know where public money goes.

Accountability and the right to know are essential conditions for an open governance policy. The current Catalan Law on Transparency (2014) has led to many changes within the administration, including having to publish expenses and revenue from public money. In 2016, Barcelona City Council created the Pressupost Obert (Open Budget) tool to make city budgets more understandable.

Via this online tool, users can browse budget information by department and by year, and find out invoicing information, among other functionalities, which allows them to compare the budget forecast with what was actually spent.

It also includes interactive graphics that help users understand where revenue comes from, where public money is being spent and why. All data is available in open format, may be downloaded and can be read in Catalan, Spanish and English.
