The financial transactions include detailed information across 30 descriptive fields, including vendor, location, award title, descriptions, and more. The addition of USAID’s financial transactions is a significant milestone for U.S. Government foreign assistance transparency, according to U.S. State Department. The new USAID data is visualized on the site here, can be downloaded in machine-readable format, and is included in the U.S. Government’s data files in the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) format found here.

The Foreign Assistance Dashboard serves as a tool for users to access U.S. foreign assistance data by country, sector, and agency in an easy-to-understand format. The site provides a visual presentation of foreign assistance data in a standard and user-friendly way. Users can manually query, filter, and download the data on the site for further analysis. The Dashboard has become the U.S. Government’s main tool for improving foreign aid transparency with over 587,000 visitors since its initial launch in December 2010, according to the U.S. State Department.


The Foreign Assistance Dashboard displays data for the Department of State, USAID, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the Department of Defense, and the Department of the Treasury. The Dashboard continues to expand with the goal of including detailed foreign assistance budget, financial, and program data from all U.S.
