As part of FundRef we have been exposed to whats called 'intramural' funding which is when a person employed by a funding agency partipates in research that subsequently gets published. In this case there would never be an award number assigned that corresponds to the person's activity. Funding agencies do like to  separatly track intramural funding.

This could be handled by adding an attribute to funding-source or some specific treatment of award-id. In the later one might include an award-id like:

<award-id specific-use="intramural"/>

The later approach, if acceptable, does not require a schema change. This could be dealt with in documentation as a recommended practice.

This request has been tabled (consideration postponed) until the next version of JATS. The committee thought that this area of information collection is still evolving and it would be premature to design a data structure for it at this time.
