The Open Budgets Portal is the first effort to create a one-stop shop for budget data worldwide with the hope of bringing visibility to countries’ efforts in this field, facilitating access and promoting use of spending data, and motivating other countries into action. The purpose of the BOOST project is to enhance the transparency and efficiency of public spending across the globe by improving access to government expenditure data and linking spending to relevant results. The BOOST team has collected and processed detailed government expenditure data from more than a dozen countries, creating easy-to-use databases that have been employed by World Bank researchers on a variety of projects.

BOOST country page for Paraguay

As part of the 2013 Public Expenditure Review, the World Bank built, with the guidance and support of Paraguay's Ministry of Finance, a BOOST database. As part of the reforms carried out by the Government of Paraguay, the BOOST dataset was released to the public through an open-source interactive pivot table interface. After the introduction fo the database to the public, the Government of Paraguay organized a series of workshops and capacity-building events aimed to create capacity among journalists involved in budget and public policy analysis. The Paraguay BOOST is divided in two files. The first file contains approved, modified, committed and paid spending figures for the central government and the decentralized agencies. The years covered for this part of the dataset range from 2003 to 2016. The data was provided by the Ministry of Finance and came from the IFMIS. This file classifies the data in economic, administrative, functional, and programmatic classifications. in addition to variables created by World Bank technicians aimed to identify the source of financing of each budget line. Additionally, the file includes a geographic identifier for each line of the budget. The second file presents expenditure data for municipal governments. The period covered in this dataset ranges from 2006 and 2016. The municipal government data in Paraguay is currently not included in that country’s IFMIS (The municipal governments are legally mandated to send written reports on municipal finances for every budget cycle to the Ministry of Finance; however the process of collecting and processing this municipal data is still no automatic). Database users should be aware of the potential limitations of the datasets. We urge users to consult the users’ manuals to learn more about these limitations and take them into account when analyzing their countries’ budgets.
