Type of Change
Addition to Schema and Codelists
One of the key goals of IATI is to improve the predictability of resource flows for users through the provision of forward-looking budgets. Users should expect IATI data to provide them with annual budget estimates across the lifetime of all activities. There are, however, circumstance under which forward-looking data cannot be provided, be it for operational, legal or commercial reason. This modification allows users to know which activities are exempt from providing budget data.
- Add attribute iati-activity/@budget-exempt
- Definition A code indicating the reason why this activity does not contain any iati-activity/budget elements. The value must exist in the BudgetExempt codelist.
- Occurs 0..1
- Add non-embedded BudgetExempt codelist
- Initial Values 1 - Commercial restrictions 2 - Legal restrictions 3 - Rapid onset emergency
