Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) play an important role in the society: they are essential partners of the knowledge creation and knowledge exchange networks, catalyst of innovation, suppliers of tangible outputs of research results, institutions providing consulting and advisory services. The thesis of this work is that nowadays there are growing expectations placed on universities by their stakeholders that request accountability for funds spending and university outcomes. The aim of this article is to focus on the concept of accountability in higher education and indicate some of the examples of HEIs' performance measurement tools that help in meeting the increased requirements of being transparent and accountable imposed on universities today. In this study we use the critical literature review and deduction method. The results may have a theoretical contribution in better understanding of the accountability concept, the description of performance measurement tools may have practical implications in meeting accountability expectations addressed to universities.
