About the service
Exploreadministration.fi is a service maintained by the State Treasury, which collects information regarding municipal finances and central government to a single website. The first version of the service will be released on 8 January 2020, at which point the site will provide access to the budget and financial plan information of municipalities and joint municipal authorities as well as the central government’s financial, personnel and profitability information. The publication of actual financial figures for municipalities and joint municipal authorities will begin in 2021.
The municipal financial reports are based on budgets and financial plans.
In the publication phase in January 2020, the service will present the budgets and financial plans of municipalities and joint municipal authorities. Actual financial figures will be available as of 2021. The municipal financial reports can be used to view the financial information of municipalities and joint municipal authorities for the desired financial year, compare the information of individual municipalities or joint municipal authorities, or view municipalities by region or in the form of sum totals. The first municipality or joint municipal authority in the drop-down list is shown by default when the report is opened. In the comparison report, the first few municipalities or joint municipal authorities in the drop-down menu are shown by default. The ‘Municipal budgets by region’ report lists all Finnish municipalities by default. The terminology used in municipal financial reports are explained in the section ABCs of municipal finances.
The central government reports are updated on a monthly basis.
The state’s financial data is based on the information provided by the state’s central accounting. The reports are updated on a monthly basis. The latest update is indicated in the upper right corner of the report. The reports can be used to examine budgets and spending at the state level as well as by administrative branch or accounting unit. The state personnel data are based on the information contained by the employer’s personnel data system Tahti. The information is updated on a monthly basis. The reports can be used to view the state’s number of employees, person years, gender and age distribution, and the proportions of part-time, full-time, fixed-term and permanent employment relationships. The data can be viewed at the state level or by administrative branch, accounting unit, performance-managed agency or employer agency. The service does not display numbers of employees when they are less than 5. The central government’s profitability information is based on the government performance information system. The data contained by the system is maintained by each performance-managed agency. The terminology used in and in the context of government reports are explained in the section ABCs of central government.
