Approval Coordinator (AC)

RevCom is a web-based, workflow system that manages the development process for directives. It enables managers and employees through out the Department to participate in the review and approval of new or revised documents.

This documentation will help you understand your role in the RevCom System. NOTE: for a more detailed explanation see the guide listed at the bottom under References.

The Approving Official (AO) designates the Approving Coordinator (AC) to submit the official position of their organization through the review, edit and consolidation of comments. The AC will assign reviewers and delegates to documents as appropriate.


You will receive notification from RevCom that you have been assigned an activity in RevCom.

The notification will contain the RevCom Activity, such as Review and Comment; the Document number and title; the day that your review is due; and a link to login to Directives RevCom
