    Hi tievoli, it would be better is you gave us the word in its context whe you ask this sort of question.

    This is not a word I meet very often. It is mainly used in context of workplaces of some sort. It suggests that something can literally be delivered, e.g. a product to a factory. It can also suggest that a target can be met, e.g. some sales figures or staffing goals.


    Main Entry: deliverablePart of Speech: nounDefinition: something that is to be delivered according to agreement; by extension, a task that one is responsible for delivering

    It always appears in our audit report, and it seems some requirement standard according to which the auditor can check if the audit issues could be closed. But I cannot search such a word in many dictionaries.

    It is a popular business-speak sort of word in some large corporations, used to mean products, objectives, or targets that you are required to provide or meet.
