English term or phrase:Responsible/Accountable
Je suis en train de traduire un document pour une association genre UNICEF. Il y a un document qui décrit 4 tâches: responsible, accountable, consult, inform.
Je vous demande votre avis car pour moi responsible et accountable peuvent avoir le même sens.
Le texte dit:
Responsible: Who is responsible for the delivery of an identified task (who has to ensure that the job gets done, irrespective of other distractions and demands on their time)?
Accountable: Who is accountable for the delivery of the identified task (who will lose their job if the task is not delivered)?
Merci pour votre aide.
