Public funding map

Describe your idea:

Graphics and maps of the spending budgets of public bodies (e.g. central gov, local gov, quangos, nhs trusts, etc).

Match up the budgets so that a user can trace public money as it flows from one institution to another and back again.

What problem does it solve?:

Public spending is opaque and it is difficult to get an overall sense of public spending and the financial relationship between public bodies.

Transparency would help identify wasteful spending and dodgy arrangements.

Type of idea: A brand new project

  1. I like this idea! Maybe using the “annual accounts” of each government department as source too – so we can see if the reported figures match the flow of funding ?
