Evaluation factor - Management responsibility / Resource accountability

This factor measures the responsibility of a role for coordinating, supervising and managing others in work activities as well as the resources (including property, IT, security and finances) for which the role is directly accountable and required to manage and control. The emphasis is on the type of responsibility, rather than the precise numbers of those supervised or managed.
