Publishing the World’s Primary Fiscal Data Sets

We created the go-to budget transparency solution for governments and budget activists, OpenSpending (alongside the Fiscal Data Package).

OpenSpending is an open-source, global database for fiscal data that was developed by the Open Knowledge Foundation (OKF) and primarily funded by The Global Initiative for Fiscal Transparency (GIFT). It while true founders Adam and Paul worked with colleagues at OKF and a range of government and civic tech stakeholders to design a powerful, flexible system that allowed users to upload and visualize fiscal data. As part of this effort, they created a fiscal data schema that later evolved into the full standard known as the Fiscal Data Package.
