Units of Aid

USAID data are published at an activity level. An aid ‘activity’ is a project, program, cash transfer, delivery of goods, training course, research project, debt relief operation, or a contribution to an international organization.

Segmentation of Published Data

Data are published as separate files per country

Data Definitions and References

Published budget figures come from the Congressional Budget Justification - a document sent to Congress by the President in January or February of each year, as required by law (31 U.S.C. § 1105), requesting new budget authority for federal programs and estimating federal revenues and outlays for the upcoming fiscal year and 4 subsequent outyears. Although the title of the document is Budget of the U.S. Government, it represents proposals for congressional consideration. There is not a one-to-one link between budget figures and the financial data - commitments and disbursements - for a given year. The Congressional Budget Justification includes sectors specific to the U.S. Government. The budgets have been mapped to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development - Development Assistance Committee (OECD/DAC) sector codes in order to improve international usability.

Record Exclusions

It is the policy of the U.S. Government, per OMB Bulletin 12-01 (/http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/bulletins/fy2012/b12-01.pdf), for agencies to have a strong presumption in favor of openness. The guidance does provide the following principled exceptions: a) When public disclosure threatens national security interests; b) When public disclosure is likely to jeopardize the personal safety of U.S. personnel or recipients of U.S. resources; c) When public disclosure would interfere with the agency's ability to effectively discharge its ongoing responsibilities in foreign assistance activities; d) When there are legal constraints on the disclosure of business or proprietary information of non-governmental organizations, contractors, or private sector clients; e) When the laws or regulations of a recipient country apply to a bilateral agreement and restrict access to information; or f) When data reveal private information about individuals that must be kept confidential consistent with ethical guidelines and federal regulations. When examining information that falls within these categories, USG agencies have sufficient flexibility to protect sensitive information from disclosure, on a case-by-case basis, in order to protect against potential harm while maintaining a strong presumption in favor of transparency. To ensure that these exceptions are rarely applied, and are used appropriately and consistent with the presumption of openness, agencies will maintain specific case-by-case justifications for all instances of reliance on the principled exceptions established in this section.
