Authorization Coordinator

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 Authorization Coordinators (ACs)  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;  the author's name; due dates for your SMEs and reporting organizations; and a link to login to NNSA Directives RevCom


Once you have clicked the link to login to RevCom you will be presented with a screen to Choose your role. You will select ACs (DPCs)/Delegates. The AC login requires your username, and the password you established.

Creating User Accounts:

ACs have the ability to create delegate and SME accounts. If there is a person you would like to review the document you would create a SME account. If there is someone that you would like to help you in your task of reviewing comments you would create a Delegate account. Delegates cannot submit the final package for the AC.

Create Groups:

If an AC has Delegates or SMEs that are specialized in certain functional areas they can create groups for those functional areas and assign the Delegates and SMEs accordingly.

Assigned Documents:

Once you have logged in the list of documents will be on the screen. All documents that are assigned to you will be on the Active Calendar tab and be shaded in yellow. Those not assigned to you will have a grey shading. The Pending tab contains documents that are awaiting a new activity/phase in the RevCom process. The Final tab contains documents that have completed the RevCom process.

Setting Due Dates:

If the due date for your Delegates/SMEs needs to be changed, it is best to do it before assigning your reviewers to a document.

Assigning  and Notify Users:

You can assign Delegates or SMEs to documents that are assigned to you. After the assignment has been made you will need to notify the reviewers using RevCom. The reviewers will submit their comments to you by the date assigned.

Adding Comments:

Clicking on the document activity will open the document and allow you to review and comment. To comment on the document click on Add Comment to open a window to insert your comment. When you have finished making your comment be sure to select the type of comment, either Major or Suggested, and then Save Comment.

Include/Exclude Submitted Comments:

As the AC, you are to submit the official position of your organization through the reivew, edit and consolidation of local comments. In addition to saving comments for inclusion, you can exclude comments. If you choose to exclude a comment, you will be asked to enter a justification for the exclusion.

Submit Comments and Notify:

Once you have included all of the reviewers comments that you chose as well as your own comments you will submit them. In order to notify your reviewers that you have submitted the final comment package you will need to select Notify. 


After submitting your comments you can track the disposition by creating a report in the Custom section of the Report menu or there are reports with pre selected criteria in the Quick section.
