    Could you please provide more details ? User Acceptance Testing is usually performed by clients or end users. Are you talking about the person performing the tests, or about the person who designs the UA tests ?

    The User Acceptance Testing should be performed by a business group or people that will be looking at the application from an end-user perspective. These tests should validate the requirements, ensuring the system is doing what the end users need it to do. The QA tests are typically executed by a team that is doing functional testing and is verifying that the code is operating as designed. If the same group is executing both of these tests they may miss some critical issues without even knowing it because they are not executing from a end-user perspective. Similarly, the development team needs the QA team to execute functional test. Having tests run from different groups will help test the system in different ways and expose different perspectives.

    If the UAT is not performed by people from the end-user/client perspective, as mentioned by Yvette, then it is something else, and should not be called "User Acceptance Testing"
