Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2012-04-20


An identifier assigned to non-Manitobans in the WICUDB allowing for the identification of individuals in that database. Each time a record is added to the WICUDB for a non-Manitoban, a search is done by name and date of birth to identify prior WICUDB records for that person. If any are found, the prior OOPUI is assigned to that new WICUDB record. If no matches are found, then a new OOPUI is assigned.
