Accountable (Definition)

The individual who is ultimately answerable for an activity, decision or outcome and who delegates work/tasks/objectives to those who are responsible. Unlike responsibility, accountability cannot be delegated. Having a single point of accountability is one of the four principles of project governance (Garland, 2009)*
