Version 2.01 - Iteration 1 - 6. Improvements to the Organisation Standard

This is part of the formal proposal that makes up the first iteration of the Version 2.01 Upgrade process.

Add recipient-country to document-link

  • In order for organisation-level documents to be classified by country it is proposed to:
    • Create a document-link/recipient-country element
    • To inherit properties from iati-activity/recipient-country

Create budget-line element

  • A number of publishers have requested the facility to add granularity to organisation-level budgets.
  • It is therefore proposed to add a new complex element for use as a nested sub-element in reporting budget breakdowns within:
    • total-budget
    • recipient-org-budget
    • recipient-country-budget
  • To achieve this it is proposed to:
    • Create a budget-line element
    • Create budget-line/@ref as a reporting organisation reference for the budget line
    • Create budget-line/text for a description of the budget line (repeated for multiple languages)
    • Create budget-line/value inherited from the existing iati-activity/transaction/value element
  • Usage
    • budget-line should be used in addition to total-budget/value, recipient-org-budget/value and/or recipient-country-budget/value. NB that it does not replace the existing reporting guidelines
