A complete list of city expenditures at a detailed transactional level (including: tax breaks, loans, contracts, grants, and operational spending). Records of actual (past) municipal spending at a detailed transactional level, for example, at the level of month to month expenditure on specific items (usually this means individual records of spending amounts at a fairly granular level - e.g. $5-50k rather than at the $1m+ level). Note: a database of contracts awarded is not considered sufficient. This data category refers to detailed ongoing data on actual expenditures. (More info)

All of the years of data were put together. The size of the file is over 370 mb. This makes it take time to access, whether in browser or in a spreadsheet. I told the software to sort by year and it crashed. I think it might be worthwhile to break up this dataset by year.

Flat file data set of the data found in the Austin Finance Online eCheckbook application. The data contained in this dataset is for informational purposes only and contains expenditure information for the City of Austin. Certain Austin Energy transactions have been excluded as competitive matters under Texas Government Code Section 552.133 and City Council Resolution 20051201-002; therefore, the line amounts may not reflect the total check amount if certain Austin Energy invoices were included on the check. Please visit the Austin Finance Online website for a searchable front end to this data set.
