Passage

Read the passage given below, and answer the questions based on your understanding of the passage:

Rolland Munro describes accountability as an informal giving that is part of everyday conversation, as well as more formal transactions generally involving some sort of documentary artifact (what we archivist refer to as a “record”). He notes that the authors move “between accounts as stories, explanations and reasons for conduct one the one hand and accounts as coded representations, records, often in the form of numbers, on the other hand”. Each of these modes mediates the other in what he refers to as “accountability relationships. ” “Distributions of materials and devices are as much as effect of the giving and calling for accounts, as they are integral to the business of producing and consuming accounts”. Records are both intermediaries in the accountability process and evidence of it.

In our daily language, we often refer to accountability as something that must be achieved, rather than as something that is done informally yet continuously. The difference here is between viewing accountability as a thing represented by and artifact, such as a record, must interact to achieve accountability. In this latter view, the focus on accountability becomes and analysis of the method people use to engage in accountability relations.
