According to our textbook, responsibility accounting (RA) are “tools and concepts used by managerial accountants to measure the performance of an organization’s people and subunits”.
Generally, RA encompasses a company’s internal accounting and budgeting. The purpose of which is to help in the development and regulate a company’s responsibility centers like a decentralized department and division. RA also includes the establishment of yearly and monthly budgets for each responsibility center and the company’s transactions are categorized by responsibility center with prepared monthly reports. The reports will have tangible amounts for each line item in the budget with the variance concerning the budget and actual amounts. RA allows business’s and managers of a responsibility center to obtain monthly feedback on the manager’s performance (Averkamp, 2018). This journal is about the organization of responsibility accounting of the enterprises of City Electric Transport (CET) in Ukraine. This article explains how CET has been unprofitable in an industry that is declining where the important role of the CET is established through the experiences of advanced and functioning worldwide transport systems and the infrastructure of transport services through accessibility, cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness. Added to this, according to scientific studies, developing better electric transport also allows for significant and positive environmental and social effects. In order to accomplish this, there would need to be drastic changes. They need to increase the performance and quality of service of the management system by guiding efforts to weather the unprofitability of their tram and trolleybus enterprises.
This article was written about how to tackle the problems within the transport service City Electric Transport (CET) in the Ukraine and how to safeguard the greatest efficacy for each passenger while at the same time ensuring the competitiveness of CET. The opportunity here was to approximate the effectiveness of different routes, and by using this approximation to set preferences for both units together that offer traffic of vehicles, and for management and staff to be accountable for the quality and efficiency of passenger transport. By incorporating state regulation of the industry, characteristics in interactions with customers, the detailed description of the services provided and technological features of structural units, CET can confirm the effectiveness of the organizations management accounting and enterprise activity. To accomplish this, the article states that a mathematical model and the method for determining the management quality, which connects the quality of service with the efficiency of city transport routes, was developed which allowed for rating of routes by the criterion of efficiency and determining the quality of service of the transport enterprise’s customers regarding the accuracy of fulfillment of the transport schedule.
