NGO Engagement in U.S. Global Health Efforts: U.S.-Based NGOs Receiving USG Support Through USAID

Appendix A: Detailed Methodology

This report is based on Kaiser Family Foundation analysis of USAID global health funding data for FY 2013.  Data were downloaded from the U.S. Foreign Assistance Dashboard (www.ForeignAssistance.gov) on October 10, 2014.

The analysis uses transaction-level data on funding disbursed by USAID to U.S.-based NGOs for global health activities.  Data include funding that was appropriated by Congress to USAID for global health activities and then disbursed to NGOs, as well as funding that was appropriated to other agencies for global health efforts, transferred to USAID, and then disbursed to NGOs.1 Due to data limitations on the Dashboard and the parameters of this analysis, the data does not include funding disbursed by other USG departments/agencies (such as the Department of State or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) to NGOs. Still, this analysis captures the majority of bilateral U.S. global health funding disbursements.2

Additionally, note:

  • To be eligible to be included in this analysis, an organization had to meet the following definition of a U.S.-based NGO: a non-profit that is independent of the U.S. government and any other government, based in the United States (through either its headquarters or a main U.S. office that had been awarded a USG global health project), and not a university/college, a hospital, or a foundation that solely supports a U.S. government department/agency, hospital, or university. Each organization’s non-profit status as well as whether they were U.S.-based was confirmed using data found on organizations’ websites.
  • Funding totals shown in this report represent net disbursements, which include positive and negative disbursed funding amounts as well as zero-dollar disbursed funding amounts. For zero-dollar transactions, we included only transactions we could verify as no-cost extensions.3

Data on health funding provided under the American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (ASHA) program were not included in NGO funding totals but were included in the overall global health funding total ($6.27 billion).
