characteristics Budget per government department, Budget per sub-department, Descriptions for budget sections Not sure what is meant by sub-departments. Data are available e.g. for ministries and than broken down by type. E.g. for ministry of defense, balance sheets are provided, where on can find expenditures such as energy consumption or representative costs (aggregated). http://monitor.statnipokladna.cz/en/2015/statni-rozpocet/kapitola/307 Municipal level is more detailed (expenditures of towns an villages).

There is also aggregated data available at ministry's own open data portal. Those data are not as detailed, but much easier to understand to an non-expert. http://data.mfcr.cz/cs/dataset/statni-rozpocet/resource/5c0595a8-2982-4d4c-8579-84db52787439
