EU Financial transparency system

“Hello all,

here in Russia we keep analysing public spending data and right now aggregating more international data sources.
I’ve found that EU has Financial Transparency System and it’s even has some public datasets here http://ec.europa.eu/beneficiaries/fts/faq_en.htm
But XML data exported lack of geographic zone information of “beneficiary” record, tag “geozone” exists but empty.
Sure CSV and XLS data files containt this information but they don’t make my heart to dance so happoly as XML does.
I’ve tried to send error report using FTS contact form but no luck only web server error.
So maybe someone knows how to contact people behind FTS or to let them know about current XML data files imperfection.

Best Regards,
Ivan Begtin”
