Advocating for public budget estimates be presented in spreadsheets?
In the spit of open budgets, all county budgets should be presented in form of spreadsheets. My friend Mr. James Muraguri of IPF Kenya would always say, “machine readable” formats.
Budget analysts undergo a lot of stress converting the pdf documents into spreadsheets in order to be able to conduct proper analysis.
This is not a lot to ask from the state.
