English translation:charging / accounting for
Explanation:
"imputation comptable" is a bit of a tautology, really, so you'll probably be all right with just "charging" in this context. As far as the whole sentence is concerned, this is just a guess, but how about something like:
"This item relates to the need to charge contract invoicing against the 'model' cost centre"
OR
"This item relates to the need to account for contract invoicing under the heading 'model'."

expenses chargeable


Explanation:
Systems like ERP get translated into many languages and I think the French you have here is not very grammatically correct. My translation: "This specification deals with expenses chargeable to contract billing under the model."

Explanation:
DO you know the GDT (ref below)? It offers 12 possibilities for "imputation" under the heading "comptabilité". I bet you will find what you need in there. I was so pleased the day I learnt on this site that the GDT was freely available on the web!
