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)

Comments

Budgets typically posted annually each fall as PDFs after drafting for a brief 'public feedback' period. No existing feedback mechanism is in place, and the budgetary data is only in PDF officially.

A request by the curator of this entry (Carl V. Lewis) for the 2016 and 2017 budgets in a machine-readable format was granted swiftly without the need for filing a FOIA. I have uploaded the budget data to data.world as a CSV and as JSON, following the Fiscal Data Package schema set by the Open Knowledge Foundations.
