Identifying the Originating Organization of a Document

       This article describe a mechanism for IBM's Document
Interchange Architecture (DIA) Services whereby  an enterprise can
specify and identify those organizations from where a document
originated. An enterprise may wish to differentiate those
organizations which assisted in preparing the document from
organizations which originated the document.

      The Interchange Document Profile (IDP) is currently used by DIA
Services to describe the characteristics of a document as a whole.
Enterprises can interchange information regarding the organizations
from where the document originated by providing self-defining fields
within the IDP which define character strings for the organizations
which were responsible for the origination of the document.

      This mechanism permits enterprises to specify an organization
when more than one individual is responsible for the origination of
the document. This mechanism permits enterprises to differentiate
between those organizations which originated the document and those
organizations which prepared the document.
