Dear IATI support
Could you please add XM-OCHA to the your list of Organisation Registration
Agencies? FTS is a secondary publisher of information, and we have our
own set of unique ID's for many organisations. In order to upgrade our
output to v2.0, we would need to be able to reuse our own organisation
Financial Tracking Service
Common Humanitarian Action Planning Section, Programme Support Branch
UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA)
Follow up from Sean:
FTS sits within OCHA, but rather than creating an organisation for FTS, I thought it would be better to have XM-OCHA. Then as per the new organisation identifier rules, we would have XM-OCHA-FTS12345 for FTS organisations. In future when there is a more standardised reference list of organisations from OCHA, then we can drop the FTS portion.
Here are the details you requested
United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
OCHA is the part of the United Nations Secretariat responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies.
for FTS it is fts.unocha.org/api/v1/organization.xml
