The early days of IATI...

The early days of IATI...

More data...

More visualisations...

More visibility

More questions?

More complexity?

Islands of data...

Bridges being built...

Information exchange...

Reality...

How the standard helps

Three ways to build links...

Maybe four..

1)Referencing Organisations

<participating-org role="Funding" type="40">DfID</participating-org> 

DfID

DFID

Department for International Development

UK Government Department for Int Dev

etc...

uniquely

identifies

<participating-org role="Funding" type="40" ref="GB-1">DfID</participating-org> 

adding the reference:

ref="GB-1"
"GB-1"

2) Identifying Activities:

<iati-identifer>GB-1-204095</iati-identifier> 

adds internal ID

"204095"

uniquely

identifies

"GB-1"

 to

"GB-1-204095"

3) Coding transactions [1]

<transaction ref="20120014">
 <transaction-type code="IF"/>
 <provider-org>DfID</provider-org>
 <value value-date="2015-06-15">1000</value>
 <transaction-date iso-date="2015-06-15" />
</transaction>
<transaction ref="20120014">
 <transaction-type code="IF"/>
 <provider-org ref="GB-1">DfID</provider-org>
 <value value-date="2015-06-15">1000</value>
 <transaction-date iso-date="2015-06-15" />
</transaction>

adding the reference:

ref="GB-1"

DfID

DFID

Department for International Development

UK Government Department for Int Dev

etc...

uniquely

identifies

"GB-1"

3) Coding transactions [2]

<transaction ref="20120014">
 <transaction-type code="IF"/>
 <provider-org ref="GB-1" provider-activity-id="GB-1-204095">DfID</provider-org>
 <value value-date="2015-06-15">1000</value>
 <transaction-date iso-date="2015-06-15" />
</transaction>
<transaction ref="20120014">
 <transaction-type code="IF"/>
 <provider-org ref="GB-1">DfID</provider-org>
 <value value-date="2015-06-15">1000</value>
 <transaction-date iso-date="2015-06-15" />
</transaction>

adding the activity:

provider-activity-id="GB-1-204095"

uniquely

identifies

"GB-1-204095"

Identification is Key

Coding transactions

Identifying Activities

Referencing Organisations

Traceability...

ref="GB-1"
"GB-1-204095"
<provider-org ref="GB-1" provider-activity-id="GB-1-204095">DfID</provider-org>

Building traceability

"GB-1"
"GB-1-202545"
"ABC-123"
"ABC"
<participating-org>
<transaction>

Organisations

Activities

Transactions

Organisations

Activities

using the standard to link:

Building traceability

"GB-1"
"GB-1-202545"
"ABC-123"
"ABC"
<participating-org>
<transaction>

Organisations

Activities

"XYZ-123"
"XYZ"
<participating-org>
<transaction>

multi-level....

Traceability Tests

Models & Guidance

Questions to Consider

How best to discover identifiers?

Questions to Consider

Applying up or down the chain (or both?)?

Questions to Consider

When all the dots are completed - what next?
