This paper offers new estimates of the main macroeconomic aggregates related to the federal public administration accounts; it adopts the methodology of the National Accounts System, but, differently from the IBGE, it measures the expenditure on a cash basis rather than on a accrual basis. The results are monthly and disaggregated series of government consumption, capital expenditures, family transfers, private institutions and intergovernmental transfers, from 2002 to 2009. The series complement the Public Finances series of the IBGE that were interrupted in 2003. The preliminary conclusions point out a change in the federal expenditure profile - intergovernmental transfers replaced the direct consumption, and family transfers now absorb 56,3% of the growth in nonfinancial expenditure.
