What is RASCI-VS

RASCI-VS is a simple grid system that brings structure and clarity to understanding the roles that various stakeholders play with regards to an object or activity. The RASCI-VS system spells out who is responsible, who is accountable, who holds a supporting role and, where appropriate, who needs to be consulted, informed, is a verifier, or signatory for any object or activity.

RASCI-VS provides the following benefits

• Governance and traceability within an organization
• Increased productivity through well-defined roles and accountability.
• Increased capacity by eliminating redundancies.
• Streamlined role structure by collapsing unneeded layers and placing accountability where it belongs.
• Enhanced security and risk management through clear segregation of duties.

What does RASCI-VS stand for

R Responsible The “doer” of the work. Responsible for completion of the task or objective or make a decision. Several roles/assets can be jointly Responsible.
A Accountable The “owner” of the work. Must sign off or approve when the task, objective or decision is complete.
Su Support Resources allocated to responsible. Unlike consulted, who may provide input to the task, support help complete the task.
C Consulted Those who need to give input before the work can be done and signed-off on. They are “in the loop” and are an active participant.
I Informed Those that need to be kept “in the picture.” They require updates on progress or decisions, but do not need to be formally consulted, nor do they contribute directly to the task or to any decisions.
V Verifier Those who check whether the product meets the acceptance criteria set forth in the product description.
Si Signatory Those who approve the verify decision and authorize the product hand-off. It seems to make sense that the signatory should be the party being accountable for its success.
