Accountability as an objective of financial reporting. The basic premise is that elected officials in governmental organizatio should held accountable for their actions. A primary government is accountable for an organization if the government appoints a voting majority of the organization's governing body.

Sometimes appointments are ministerial and lack accountability and sometimes accountability exists without appointment.
