PDAF Full dataset

Requested from DBM by Jason Alinsunurin at 12:41 AM on Dec 07, 2018.
Purpose: Analysis of discretionary spending in the PH
Date of Coverage: 01/01/2010 - 12/06/2018
Tracking no: #DBM-968515219900

As part of my research work, I'm presently working on constructing a dataset of discretionary public expenditures in the Philippines and I was wondering if the links to access the publicly-available datasets of the PDAF disbursements are still available. For example, these pages don't seem to load: I know if these datasets have already been moved to a different page or if they are in the process of being moved? The link above is a sample of the PDAF breakdown for Henedina Abad of Batanes.
