We now have sight of the latest set of proposed (nb not yet formally agreed and published) organisation type definitions as required to support the tracking of funding for the Grand Bargain localisation workstream and as proposed by the Grand Bargain working group for localisation.
An initial cross-mapping of the definitions to both the existing IATI organisation types and those from the DAC channel code list has highlighted that in order to support the Grand Bargain initiative it would also be necessary to add the following to the IATI codelist:
11 Local government
71 Local private sector
However, I would also agree that both the IATI and the GB definitions should be harmonised with the DAC channel code definitions. Given that there are some pre-existing differences between the IATI codelist and the DAC channel code lists it looks like this could / should actually only happen as part of an integer IATI Standard upgrade?
