State and USAID: Bosnia and Herzegovinas (BiH) progress toward Euro-Atlantic integration-and the democratic, economic, and security commitments such integration entails-is essential to the broader stability of the Western Balkans. However, BiH remains ethnically fractured and politically unstable, with a limited capacity to administer itself efficiently. It continues to lag behind most of its neighbors on implementing the economic and political reforms needed to make progress toward North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and European Union (EU) integration. U.S. assistance will help BiH pursue its Euro-Atlantic future by assisting the country in making the necessary reforms and addressing some of the challenges that have hindered its NATO and EU accession. It will also reinforce reforms that remain vulnerable to backsliding or have stalled, contributing to recent civil unrest and popular demands for increased government accountability. U.S. programs seek to bolster and irreversibly entrench a multi-ethnic democracy that safeguards the rights of all citizens, values tolerance and diversity, and enables women, youth and minorities to flourish. U.S. assistance also continues to support government institutions and civil society, which enable active citizen involvement and combat corruption; effective and accountable law enforcement, judicial, and prosecutorial systems that uphold the rule of law; an integrated military that meets security needs and NATO membership goals; and an economic space that fosters private sector development and provides opportunity for all citizens. Continued U.S. assistance and active engagement will be crucial in order for BiH to make progress on its integration goals and to ensure stability.

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.
