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 original submission does not count as valid. The submitter refers to a spending list for subsidies (downloadable as XLS, and openly licensed as http://data.gov.tw/license#eng). According to the source website, the data presents subsidies by the Ministry of the Interior to the county government, groups and individuals of the subsidy schedules (aggregated). The data is not itemised, therefore does not meet the required level of detail (transaction level, displaying the recipient). Subsidies are also only one part of the spending record. Expenditure data from the procurement process needs to be contained.
