Solomon Islands BOOST Public Expenditure Database

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 Solomon Islands

The Solomon Islands’ BOOST government expenditure database was constructed with data provided to the World Bank by the Solomon Islands’ Ministry of Finance (MoF). Being one of the founding members of the Open Budget Portals, Solomon Islands is one of the first members of the G7+ to make their public expenditures database available in one single file in computer readable format. As of today, The Solomon Islands dataset presents expenditure amounts for the period between 2006 and 2016. The data is dissected in four levels of economic classification, three levels of functional classification, source of financing, type of budget, and two levels of administrative classifications. The database includes information only for the central government. The figures for the recurrent budget were reconciled against budget reports published in the Ministry of Finance website for the years 2008 to 2014, which are the years for which reports were available. Some discrepancies beyond the 5% range were identified, particularly for debt payments. Clarifications about the source of these discrepancies are being requested from the authorities. Likewise, the budget estimates and actuals of the development budget (i.e., financed by donors) were not reconciled. 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.
