Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed (RACI)
RACI is a model to clearly articulate the roles and responsibilities for a person, team, organization, or activity. The term "RACI" is derived from the model, which specifies who is responsible, accountable, consulted, and informed for a given outcome.
Responsible refers to the person that does the work. The RACI model prescribes that this is never more than one person.
Accountable refers to the decision maker or decision making body. The accountable person or committee is generally expected to justify (provide an account of) the decisions made.
Consulted refers to anyone that can help make an informed decision or evaluate the quality of work, but does not necessarily make the decision or perform the work.
Informed refers to anyone that should be notified of decisions and when work is completed.
RACI charts help organize and visualize the RACI model by plotting work by attribute or by plotting attribute by.
