The Party Identification Directory, we’ll be referring to it as PID from now on, provides two primary functions.

  • A directory of contact, identifier, and address information for parties involved in the paper and forest supply chain.
  • Look-up and retrieval of this information

You are experiencing one of the ways that we can make the PID service work. All approaches start the same way, an existing member invites a new trading partner to participate.

  • The invited trading partner can choose to maintain their own information.
  • Alternatively, the invited trading partner can choose to engage with IDEAlliance to maintain their trading partner information.

We’ll be reviewing how to access the information in the following slides. The point to take away from this slide is:

  • The quality of the information available is based on the effort that everyone puts into maintaining the information.

During the prototype period PID is hosted at - navigate to the site and select the link for Registered Users.


Password: visitor

Use the visitor access to query the directory.

The ability to maintain your company’s information is controlled by your email domain; so, registration is required.

You may also register on the PID Site. This will permit you to perform maintenance and invite additional trading partners to participate.

location search
Location Search

If you do not have an identifier you can use this screen to find a location using a variety of criteria.

  • This inquiry is also available as a web service and as a Microsoft Research Service. We’ll be discussing the research service later on in this presentation, web-service documentation is available separately.

This is the primary human interface into PID.

location information
Location Information
  • Locations follow the papiNet model
    • All Party elements and attributes
      • all items included in data model
      • not all shown on screen

In addition to the papiNet model

    • Location hierarchy based on parent-child relationship
    • Some additional contact roles to support PID admin
identifier search
Identifier Search
  • Identifiers have a base value and an extension.
    • Think “DUNS” and “+4”

This is the primary system interface into PID.

identifier information

    • Paid maintenance – Trading partners provide lists and contact we enter and update, following up periodically.
    • Pull – Admin will initiate an entry and invite a contact to participate
    • Push – participant will initiate an entry and invite a contact to participate
  • Contact status
    • Sponsor
      • Person initiating, if a foreign domain then can change until Prospect is validated, domain has been associated with location.
    • Prospect
      • A registered or non-registered contact who has been targeted as being responsible for a domain
    • Administrator

      • Non-domain members who have been provided maintenance access.
