Responsibility Assignment Matrix – RACCI Matrix
The Responsibility Assignment Matrix (RACCI Matrix) describes the participation by various roles in completing tasks or deliverable for a project or business process. It is especially useful in clarifying roles and responsibilities in cross-functional/departmental projects and processes.
Responsible (Recommender / Driver / Performer) – Those responsible for the performance of the task. There should be exactly one person with this assignment for each task.
Accountable (Final Approving Authority) – The one ultimately answerable for the correct and thorough completion of the deliverable or task, and the one who delegates the work to those responsible.
Consulted (Contributor / Counsel) – Those whose opinions are sought; and with whom there is two-way communication.
Control – The person/function reviewing the result of the activity (other than the accountable). He or she has a right of veto; his or her advice is binding.
Informed – Those who are kept up-to-date on progress; and with whom there is one-way communication.
