Dear Rolf and Bill,
I am Geert van Seggelen, working at the Netherlands Space Office, and the person who spoke with Rory about this issue.
I was assuming the application for an IATI identifier for NSO would not result in many problems, but appearently it does. I understand your concern about handing out identifiers to all kinds of different organisations and losing some structure in this proces.
However, in our case, I think we are kind of an exceptional case. In contrast to what you are saying, we are definitely NOT a part of RVO. As you state youself in this link: https://zoek.officielebekendmakingen.nl/stcrt-2008-217-p2-SC88269.html, RVO is not mentioned at all.
We just use the facilities of the building RVO is situated in. Nothing more, nothing less. But next to this, we would really like to use an unique and visable identifier as NSO as we execute the program, not RVO or some other governmental department.
But maybe it is better to explain the issue by Phone. You can reach me on this number: 0627855214.
I hope we can solve this issue for the best of both parties.
Geert van Seggelen
