This database was created as a global dataset presenting the use of Financial Management Information Systems in publishing Open Budget Data in 198 economies (using 20 key and 20 informative indicators). The dataset was released in September 2013, as a part of the FMIS and OBD Study (FMIS and Open Budget Data: Do Governments Report on Where the Money Goes?) and is updated annually to reflect the developments since then. The dataset is being used to monitor the effects of FMIS on publishing budget execution performance, identify potential improvements in budget transparency, and provide some guidance on the effective use of FMIS platforms to publish open budget data.
