Term Definition

Payments made using cash, check, or electronic transfers. Disbursements include advances to others as well as payments for goods and services received and other types of payments made (JFMIP). Note: The Agency often uses the term disbursements to mean only payments that liquidate obligations, which actually is the definition for outlays. (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapters 200-203, 630, 631).
