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.

There is an up to date contract database at the Office of the Comptroller's website and at data.pr.gov.||The Puerto Rico Institute of Statistics sponsors http://www.transparenciafinanciera.pr, which is attempting to collect transaction level information of the expenses of all of Puerto Rico's government agencies.|
