View all agencies

While the Department of Transportation (DOT) is first and foremost a domestic agency focused on transportation safety, many of DOT’s international activities also support foreign policy goals related to transportation. DOT may provide technical assistance to international partners and engage in multi-lateral programs and in cooperative partnerships.

For example, DOT's Safe Skies for Africa (SSFA) program seeks to improve safety, security, and air navigation in sub-Saharan Africa, assisting states and regional organizations on the continent.

Further, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) interacts with international partners and advises on technical assistance matters as part of nearly 400 technical assistance agreements with other countries. These agreements cover the entire spectrum of civil aviation activities and include training, flight inspection, equipment, spare parts and repair services, and cooperative agreements.

Transaction Data | DOT

Transaction data represents every individual financial record in an agency’s accounting system for program work with implementing partners and administrative expenses. Transaction data is the most granular form of financial data. Each data record - or financial transaction - contains qualitative data fields, including descriptive titles, vendor names, and location, along with the financial data. Thus, transaction data is called Disaggregated data as it disaggregates financial data into its most basic form.

The data shown above in the planned, obligated, and spent tabs represents transaction data aggregated at a higher level of analysis (by country and sector only), thus this data is called Aggregated data.

The table below displays every applicable award within each agency’s accounting system. An award may consist of multiple financial transactions. In these instances, the table displays the award’s aggregated sum of its individual transactions. Data from the table can be downloaded by selecting each individual award. The downloadable report disaggregates award data into individual transactions. If an award has multiple transactions, the downloadable report will generate lines of data for each transaction.

For additional information related to data definitions and classifications, please refer to the Glossary of Terms or the FAQs.

This data set will continue to be updated in accordance with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Bulletin 12-01.
