Records of actual (past) national government spending at a detailed transactional level. Data must display ongoing expenditure, including transactions and subsidies. A database of contracts awarded or similar will not be considered sufficient. Open spending data shows whether public money is efficiently and effectively used. It helps to understand spending patterns, and to display corruption, misuse, and waste. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

The FOD Beleid en Ondersteuning provides spending data as yearly expenditures (at: http://www.begroting.be/NL/figures/Documents/Uitgaven%202017ini%20NL.pdf) This data does not show single transactions and what the money was exactly spent on. Other data shows the planned expenditure, which is not actual spending data (e.g. http://www.begroting.be/NL/figures/Documents/AT_54K2107001.pdf) The initial submission by Bart Hanssens is correct.
