||As of the approval date and whenever applicable, this data element
will be used in any new automated system, data set, database, or information application,
including new Geographic Information System (GIS) data and applications. This data
element will also be used in any major modifications to existing systems or versions of
these data-related items that identify and track higher management organization codes
for Service organizations.
Examples of Hierarchy for Reporting:
In some instances, a Service organization's higher management organization code will be the same as its assigned organization code, e.g., 30100, Office of the Regional Director, and 90100, Director-U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The Service data standard for Organization Code can be viewed at this site. Organization codes and higher management organization codes will be handled as separate data fields in any new or modified automated system.
TService staff are strongly encouraged to utilize this data element in existing systems, data sets, databases, and information applications. Where existing systems and data-related items are not in compliance, they should be modified to achieve compatibility and implement this data standard.
