VSAC Author and Steward Roles and Permissions

VSAC Author and Steward Roles

  • Authors and stewards work collaboratively as two groups to create, approve, publish, and maintain value sets.
  • Authors create and edit value sets. They subsequently submit value sets for approval by their steward.
  • Stewards review, approve, and publish their authors' submitted value sets.
  • VSAC expects stewards to continue maintenance of their value sets, as terminology, science, and program needs change over time.
  • Author groups and steward groups may contain one or more members.
  • Value set creators may choose to act as both their own author and their own steward.
