twofold responsibility/from the standpoint/ from the point of view
Explanation:
the second one of your "profili" I would translate as "from the point of view of the agreement", "from the standpoint"

I would simply put the first "profilo" down to Italian verbosity and redundancy (I can safely say so as I am one of them) and translate "twofold responsibility"

"profile," "perception"


Explanation:
Io ci userei l'analogo inglese nel senso più stretto, come nel riferimento legale/finanziere "profilo di acquisizione" o "profilo d'acquisto" per "acquisition profile"; ma dovresti piuttosto considerare il secondo suggerimento di sopra, nel senso di descrivere la possibilità di due eventuali punti di vista diversi per quanto riguarda l'ente responsabile degli affari coperti da questo contratto. Buon lavoro - Gary Presto (IT-EN Translator).
