What is a UIC?

UIC stands for “Unit Identification Code.” The UIC is a six-character, alphanumeric code that uniquely identifies each Active, Reserve, and National Guard unit of the Armed Forces.

I need to know how to get the UIC information for the vFRG site where I serve as a Site Administrator. Can you tell me where I get this information?

The Unit Commander, Rear Detachment Commander, or Unit Staff will be able to provide this information for you.

Our unit is currently in the transformation process. Our geographical location will be the same, but the UIC will change. Should I update the information now or wait for the change?

The information for the FRG can be updated at any time. The new system's method of helping a user find the FRG to subscribe to will include the geographic information and the UIC information to provide multiple ways of finding the FRG rather than just the name. If the status of your FRG changes, you can update the information for your FRG and the system will adjust accordingly.

Do you want the Unit's UIC on the Sponsor Database Template or the separate Company UIC that each individual Sponsor is in?

The UIC used should be the UIC of the vFRG site developed. If it is a Battalion site, then you would use the UIC for the Battalion (which most of the time ends with a "AA"); if it is a waiver-approved Company site, then you would use the Company's UIC.

Thus, every single entry in your entire Sponsor Database will have the same UIC no matter what. This should be the same UIC that is listed in the "FRG" module under "Edit FRG."
