When searching through the New York Department of State Corporation and Business Identity database, all information pages in the results have this note at the bottom:

NOTE: New York State does not issue organizational identification numbers

NOTE: New York State does not issue organizational identification numbers

But at the very same time, each result has a DOS ID# (Department of State ID) that uniquely identifies the entity:

DOS ID #

This strikes me as confusing and inconsistent. Does an "organizational identification number" have special significance that a DOS ID is not designed to convey?
