State and USAID: The achievement of a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a core U.S. national security objective. The U.S. government pursues this foreign policy objective by working with both parties to facilitate a negotiated settlement to the conflict and by supporting Palestinian institution-building so that a future state will possess the capacity to govern, provide services, and ensure security and stability within its borders and also with its neighbors. To bolster this policy approach, the U.S. governments foreign assistance program supports the development of Palestinian Authority (PA) institutional capacity to deliver quality services; improves security conditions on the ground while reinforcing Palestinian respect for the rule of law; fosters the conditions for a strong private-sector driven economy; aids the development of quality health and education services; provides critical infrastructure programming to improve water, sanitation, and road networks; meets humanitarian assistance needs; and provides direct budget support to the PA to ensure its ongoing fiscal viability. U.S. government programming contributes to the overall stability and security of the region by continuing to support the development of public and private institutions, enhanced law enforcement and security, local and national governance systems, service standards in health and education, trade and commerce regulation, PA budget stability, and key infrastructure networks. The U.S. governments foreign assistance program supports the goals of the Initiative for the Palestinian Economy, an Office of the Quartet Representative-led initiative that will transform the Palestinian economy through large-scale private sector investment in eight key sectors.

Only USAID and USADF are currently reporting transaction data to the Dashboard.
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 up to 37 qualitative data fields, including descriptive titles, vendor names,
and location, along with the financial data. Thus, the transaction data is called Disaggregated data.
