U.S. Department of State Data
U.S. government agencies are adding data to ForeignAssistance.gov incrementally and are working to build up their capability to report data on a quarterly basis to comply with OMB Bulletin 12-01. Each agency has selected the base year from which they will start reporting based on their current capability. The addition of other agencies and more detailed data will take place in phases.

Transaction Data | DoS
Transaction data represents every individual financial record in an agency’s accounting system that has been processed in the given time period for program work with implementing partners and other administrative expenses. The data shown in the planned, obligated, and spent tabs represents the same financial data at a higher level of aggregation (by country and sector only), thus this data is called Aggregated data.
The transaction data shows the same financial data at a more granular level. Each data record - or financial transaction - contains qualitative data fields, including descriptive titles, vendor names, and location, along with the financial data. Thus, the transaction data is called Disaggregated data.
This data set will continue to be updated in accordance with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Bulletin 12-01.
