First thing is that Oracle does not need to be installed as root.
There are couple of scripts that need to be run as rootpre.sh or
root.sh. Once you do that for app team, they do not need root access
for anything.
If you want to give them root access to run those scripts then give it as below:

oracle servername=(root) full-path-for-command

Hope this helps.
