The latest updates on Openbudgets.brussels

Since December 2021, the Openbudgets data have been enriched with the amounts committed in 2018, 2019 and 2020 within the framework of public contracts by the Société des Transports Intercommunaux de Bruxelles (STIB) and by citydev.brussels. With regard to subsidies, only the amounts allocated by citydev.brussels in 2018, 2019 and 2020 are included on the platform, the STIB not granting any.

Key figures for 2020 

  • STIB has committed 320 million euros for its public contracts.
  • brussels committed 1.4 million euros in the context of its public contracts and allocated grants for a total amount of 90,000 euros.

In addition to improving technical performance, the data tables have been revised and now allow:

  • to consult directly the file of the company concerned on the site of the Crossroads Bank for Enterprises (CBE), by clicking on the CBE number of the company shown in the table;
  • to know the Minister in charge of the expenditure. In addition, the grants have been classified according to their type: organic, optional or regulatory grants.

The next planned improvements will concern:

  • Data automation from SAP;
  • The modification of certain technical functionalities;
  • Adding municipal data.


Openbudget.brussels is a cadaster of public spending in the framework of public procurement and grants in the Brussels Region. All key information at regional level since 2018 (amounts, beneficiaries, objects…) are included. Tunnel renovation works, subsidies to sports NPOs, Covid premiums, subsidies to companies for innovation… A real mine of information! What’s more, all the data is in opendata, allowing their reuse.

Better understanding who spent how much and why, makes political decisions more transparent.


Openbudgets.brussels is based on open datasets, published on a data model built for the reuse and visualization of these data. You can find the data model on datastore.brussels.

The data in this register have been supplied by the administrations responsible for publishing them. For more information about the published data, please contact the administration in question.
