What the portal does
Timor-Leste Budget Transparency Portal is a website that lets you interactively:
- get complete financial information on how the national budget is being spent
- access historical and recent data, and
- monitor the progress of Timor-Leste Government’s budget execution.
The portal is updated every day so information is current.
The portal is accessible to all members of the public, groups and development partners.
Timor-Leste Budget Transparency Portal was launched on 15 March 2011 by His Excellency, Prime Minister Kay Rala Xanana Gusmao with the Minister of Finance, Emilia Pires.
How it works

- approved budget amount (Budget)
- what has been paid (Actuals)
- amounts reserved in the budget but without a contract yet (Commitment), and
- amounts reserved in the budget with a contract (Obligation).
You can export reports and filtered results in PDF, Word, Excel, XML and HTML formats.
