U.S. Department of Agriculture

Agency Overview

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) supports international initiatives in the areas of natural resources and environment, natural resources conservation, foreign agriculture, food safety inspection, economic research, agricultural research, animal and plant health inspection and marketing services. Five USDA agencies implement foreign assistance programs:

  • The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)
  • The Agricultural Research Service (ARS), Office of International Research
  • The Forest Service (FS)
  • The Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS)
  • The National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA)

Not every USDA agency listed makes foreign assistance awards each year. Only FAS’s international food aid program is currently being reported. Other FAS foreign assistance programs will be reported in the future.

Transaction Data | USDA

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.
