Who is Responsible for Follow Up on RCA

In my experience the appointing authority will identify the principal investigator, and the responsible organization. The responsible organization is required to support the RCA process, and implement corrective actions.

Standard Follow Up on RCA

What ever actions have been taken, make that as a standard for the process. It should not be people dependent. If it is then it wont be sustained. So build it as a standard for that process.

High Level, Long-term Oversight

I agree with other respondents that process owners / responsible orgs should be the immediate owners for corrective action plans.
However, in the long run, I believe there needs to be some high level oversight of all such corrective action efforts. Depending on the RCA's level of significance, that higher level oversight may be needed from the very top reaches of the management team.
The focus of that oversight ought to be on issues like quality of RCAs and corrective actions, effectiveness of corrective actions that have been completed. And ensuring that the responsible org is doing what it takes to achieve sustainable long-term performance improvement (with little or no recurrence of the original problem).
