Answerability of an individual or group to another individual or group for the kind and quality of decisions made or actions taken. Accountability can be to a supervisor or sponsor organization (e.g. to a professional association as part of one’s professional mandate). It can also be to an individual or group to whom one has a fiduciary responsibility (e.g. as a group’s representative at a meeting or to a community of people one accepts a duty to serve.)
