Version 2.01 - Iteration 3 - 7. Replicate more activity-level elements at transaction level

This is part of the formal proposal that makes up the third iteration of the Version 2.01 Upgrade process.
 
In order to provide more accurate reporting of multi-country and multi-sector activities, and to allow for the changing of the activity-level sector over time without compromising previously reported sector-specific commitments and disbursements, it is proposed to add the following fields at transaction level (in addition to activity-level):
 
NB. If any of these elements are used at transaction level, they must not be used at activity level within the same activity.
NB. All of these elements exclude percentage splits at transaction level

Add transaction/sector

  • This element should inherit all characteristics from the activity-level sector element excluding percentage
  • Sector MUST be reported at either activity level or transaction level but not both
  • Multiple sectors per transaction can only be reported if they come from different vocabularies.[Added 08-09-2014]

Add transaction/recipient-country

  • This element should inherit all characteristics from the activity-level recipient-country element excluding percentage
  • If this element is used then the activity-level recipient-country element MUST NOT be used
  • Only one recipient-country OR recipient-region may be reported per transaction. [Added 08-09-2014]
  • If a transaction covers multiple countries and/or regions then the transaction needs to be split into constituent parts, [Added 08-09-2014]

Add transaction/recipient-region

  • This element should inherit all characteristics from the activity-level recipient-region element excluding percentage
  • If this element is used then the activity-level recipient-region element MUST NOT be used 
  • Only one recipient-country OR recipient-region may be reported per transaction. [Added 08-09-2014]
  • If a transaction covers multiple countries and/or regions then the transaction needs to be split into constituent parts, [Added 08-09-2014]
