The Office of The Special Coordinator for Middle East Transitions (D/MET), was established in September 2011 and coordinated United States Government assistance to incipient democracies arising from popular revolts across the Middle East and North Africa region. The Special Coordinator for Middle East Transition and D/MET Office had direct reporting relationships to the Deputy Secretary and the Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs.

The Coordinator had, through the Deputy Secretaries, the Secretary’s mandate to formulate, secure resources for, and oversee the implementation of, coordinated strategies to support NEA countries in transition. D/MET also coordinated closely with the Office of the Director of Foreign Assistance on budget allocations, congressional notifications, and other actions relating to assistance activities within the designated transition countries.

In 2015, the Office of the Special Coordinator For Middle East Transitions was merged into the Bureau of Near Eastern Affair’s Office of Assistance Coordination. Visit //2009-2017.state.gov/p/nea/ for more information.
