Sorry, I took a lot of liberties translating "abgesprochen" but I doubt that *that* word is giving you trouble. Other possibilities - however general in nature - "established" "arranged" "agreed-upon" . . . good luck!

agree  BrigitteHilgner: I would write "complete" but that is just a question of personal taste.

  -> I agree with that. Thank you!

agree  Peggy Maeyer: Yes, but I would say "full", not "total" or "complete" (you can verify usage with Google), and I would use the abbreviation which is very commonly used, i.e., "full P&L responsibility"
