OSCAR: publishing raw data from the database
This annual set of raw data released from the OSCAR reporting system covers plans, outturn and in-year data for financial years 2014-15 to 2018-19. This dataset, in addition to the previous OSCAR and COINS releases, makes public spending data more transparent.
OSCAR is a cross-government financial consolidation system that replaced the COINS public spending database. It’s a user-friendly system that provides us with key management information and data for public reporting. Please note that due to the increased level of detail contained in the OSCAR system, it is not backwards-compatible with previous COINS releases.
