Get Involved

Glad to see you here!

This site is for enthusiastic doers, citizens and budget nerds from across the world. We care deeply about welcoming everyone regardless of skills and will do what we can to help you getting started!

We acknowledge that involvement with OpenSpending will be different based on your goals. We try to cover as many topics as possible here, but please reach out if you think we’re missing something.

There’s lots of general and technical discussion happening on our OpenSpending Forums (also in Portuguese!).

If you want to ask something more technical, we also have a Live Chat on Gitter : Gitter Chatroom. For the full list of ways to get in touch, visit our contact page.

Contribute to the Open Fiscal Data Package

If you’re interested in publishing your fiscal data as open data, we’d recommend you take a look at the Fiscal Data Package.

If you’d like to learn more about it, you can read our brief introduction here. If you are and advanced user, you can read the Specification

If you have comments about it, we welcome input from the community regarding the specification. You can contribute to the development process by leaving suggestions and queries in the issue tracker.

If you want to contribute with more data, you can upload your data to OpenSpending.
