Business_Associate_Type R_Business_Associate
A mnemonic code or abbreviation that uniquely identifies the types of Business Associate. Examples of type are corporation, sole proprietor, partnership, or individual. Note that types must form a valid combination with BA Sub Types. The Sub Types are Company, Person, BA Group, and Generic BA. A valid combination is Company/Corporation. An example of an invalid combination is Person/Corporation. This rule is enforced via a lookup against the R_Valid_BA_Type table. Yes
Current_Flag boolean NA
An indicator that identifies if a business associate is eligible for current activity. If true, the business associate should appear in drop down lists and be available to users for inclusion in new relationships and activities. If false, the business associate should not be made available to users for inclusion in new relationships or activities. If false, the business associate is kept for the purpose of reporting history and to maintain data integrity. No
End_Date DATE NA
The last date that a business associate exists or is active, for example, the date a company is dissolved. No
A reference value that describes the state of existence in the lifecycle of the entity, for example, Planned, Predicted, Required, Simulated, and Actual. Yes
Globally Unique IDentifier for an instance of a class. USAGE NOTES: There are two cases: 1) GUID is not populated or used; and 2) it is populated with a value that is globally unique. If the GUID is populated there are two means of doing so for a given project: 2a) Seabed automatically generates and populates the GUID when an instance is created (valid only on Oracle based systems); and 2b) the GUID is generated and populated by an application (other than Seabed) on instance creation. Whether Seabed automatically generates GUIDs for a project is determined by the Auto_GUID flag in SDS_Account. Note that techniques 2a and 2b can coexist in the same project. When GUIDs are automatically generated an application can override the automatically generated GUID with its own GUID by simply supplying the GUID value. Applications that generate their own GUIDs and populate the GUID column will function correctly on projects which have automatic GUID generation turned on. No

Unique identifier for this entity. Yes
Insert_Date DATE NA

Unique_Identifier STRING128 NA
An identifier, defined and constructed by users of the database, that allows business associates to be uniquely identified for the purpose of matching and loading data. For example, a user has a text file with information on thousands of employees to be loaded. A unique id concatenating last name, first name, middle initial, and birth date is constructed and stored in this field. As records are loaded, an exact match found on this combined data indicates a duplicate and the record is skipped or updated. USAGE NOTE: This column is currently used in a natural key for Business Associate, which also includes the columns: Name and BA Type. Please ensure that, when loading data, a value is placed in Unique Identifier that is truly unique across all sub-types (Person, Company, BA_Group, Generic_BA) of Business Associate. No
Update_Date DATE NA
Date of the most-recent modification to the entity. No
Update_User STRING64 NA
The name of the user responsible for the last modification to this entity. No
