Responsible may refer to:
  • having an obligation to do something, or having control over or care for an entity, as part of one's job or role.
  • being in charge, being the owner of a task or event.

Even though an entity is Responsible, they may NOT be Accountable. Often the entity that is accountable has delegated their duties to the Responsible entity. As when an Organizational Entity delegates a task to an employee. The Organizational Entity is Accountable but the employee is Responsible
