findable_steps I decided to visit the Ministry of Finance page, by perusing the page I accessed the given resource tab and from there able to read their publication to the web. However the data for government budget was small and not recent
Collected by government Yes
usability 1 The given documentation does not include a detailed lay out of the government's budget. It is geared towards a presentation format that describes the objectives and adjustments for the fiscal year. Although good for users to investigate the country's objectives it does not coincide well with the objective of open data to measure and actual figures and performance
