Is it accountability without a promise?

Is it accountability without a promise? It seems obvious enough: knowledge of a precise promise, or commitment, gives strength to demands for accountability from citizens, and the corresponding broad outcomes we are after, such as citizen empowerment or better services. And yet I raise this because I am not convinced that all the work being done under the “transparency and accountability” umbrella quite follows this logic.
