Why is it Important?
Being able to hold government accountable for the money it spends on things directly related to the public is an essential part of transparency, transformation and positive change. Vulekamali is a big step forward in making the national and provincial budgeting process more accessible to all South Africans, as it provides access to information and allows people to offer suggestions and give advice to government.
How can it be accessed and used?
All content can be accessed via the Vulekamali home page.
If you are new to budget data, have a look at the video series created with the aim of helping guide you through your experience of using the portal. They provide a brief guideline about the project itself; explain why the budget is important to everyone, how the portal can help you and a little bit about the budget process.
Budget data and analysis
After opening the department budgets page you can select a financial year (2015/16-2018/19) or department in which to conduct your research. You can also search by sphere of government, topic (e.g. education, social grants or poverty alleviation) or department.
Data and associated charts are arranged according to the relevant stage of the budget (and implementation or review) process. You can also use the portal to guide your participation in the budget process by seeing what National Treasury, departments and Parliament are busy with each month and discover opportunities for public participation.
