The article mentions the current situation about the awareness of managers and lecturers of Vietnamese public universities on implementing the accountability. Survey results show that the awareness of managers and lecturers of Vietnamese universities on implementing the accountability still has certain limitations and shortcomings. From that, the article has proposed a number of measures to raise the awareness of Vietnamese university managers and lecturers on the implementation of accountability: Organizing research, thoroughly grasping in managers and lecturers about the need to implement the accountability; Diversifying the forms of dissemination and propaganda for managers and lecturers to be fully aware of the implementation of the accountability; Overcoming the incorrect and incomplete perceptions of implementing the accountability in universities.
