GUMMEI is used to identify a MME in MME pool. An eNodeB may have connection with multiple MME's. If UE already had connection or registered with a MME in MME pool, then it will send GUMMEI in subsequent RRC connection setup complete message while making RRC connection with eNodeB. When enodeb receives GUMMEI in RRC connection setup complete message, it prepares and forwards "Initial UE message" to relevant MME.

GUMMEI is an optional element in RRC connection setup complete message. It means it may come or not, based on the availability of GUMMEI or some other conditions.
