                     FHASL Production Responsibility Levels

                     The level of responsibility for a particular task or function varies, depending upon the resource or organization and
                     the task or function. Levels of responsibility for a particular task or function can be classified as:

                     Level       Level Description              Detail Description
                          I      Inform                         The resource is responsible for informing others about this task/function (e.g.,
                                                                informing Tier 2 support about new service requests)
                         A       Approve                        The resource is responsible for approving actions taken related to this
                                                                task/function (e.g., FHASL project management approving application software
                                                                fixes before they are released)

                                                                management concurring with HIIPS about upgrading the Oracle database release)


                         H       Help                           The resource is responsible for helping to execute this task/function (e.g.,

                          E      Execute                        The resource is responsible for executing this task/function (e.g., HIIPS
                                                                executing system tape backups)
                         V       Validate                       The resource is responsible for validating this task/function (e.g., helping to
                                                                investigate and resolve printing problems reported by users)
                         R       Responsible                    The resource is ultimately responsible for this task/function, including execution
                                                                (unless otherwise noted) (e.g., FHASL is responsible for obtaining FHASL-related
                                                                software license keys)
