OBS Tracker

The Open Budget Survey (OBS) Tracker was a pilot project run between November 2013 and November 2015, which allowed citizens, civil society, media, and others to monitor in near-real time whether central governments were releasing the requisite information on how the government is managing public finances. Using data collected by independent civil society budget experts in the 30 countries included in the pilot, the OBS Tracker monitored and reported on whether central governments were publishing, on time, the eight key budget documents required by international standards on budget transparency.

In 2016, the methodology of the OBS Tracker was integrated into the full Open Budget Survey. See the most recent results here.
