This descriptive-correlational study determined the public administrative accountability practices among Sulu State College employees during Academic Year 2020-2021 in terms of administrative transparency, efficiency, responsiveness, responsibility, integrity, and equity and the significant correlation and differences in these levels when data are classified according to respondents’ demographic profiles. In this study, almost three-fourth or majority of the Sulu State College employees are female, within 30 years old & above and 31-40 years old brackets, almost one-half are married, having 10 years and below years of service, and with Bachelor’s degree. Generally, public administrative accountability is practiced to a high extent by Sulu State College employees. Except for variable educational attainment, all other variables such as gender, age, civil status and length of service do not significantly intervene in ways how Sulu State College employees perceive towards the extent of administrative accountability practices. Doctorate degree holders are better in perceiving the administrative accountability practices in terms of Efficiency, Responsiveness, Integrity and Equity Categories. With high extent of administrative accountability practices and the high positive correlation among the levels of this variable, this particularly study tends to support the model introduced by AbuHasanein’s (2017) Administrative Accountability Model derived from Bovens (2007) which stresses that accountability often covers other distinct concepts such as transparency, efficiency, responsiveness, responsibility, integrity and equity (Bovens, 2007 in AbuHasanein , 2017).
