TODAY'S WORD: deliverable

Deliverable, as an adjective, describes something that can be
delivered, such as a product or service. For example, a software
application might be said to be deliverable by a certain date. In an
IT context, "deliverable" is more frequently used as a noun. For
example, a software application might be listed as a project
deliverable in a request for proposal (RFP). In its frequently asked
questions section, the AskOxford Web site says that although
"deliverables" has been included in their recent dictionaries, such
as the New Oxford Dictionary of English (1998), the term's use in
this way is relatively recent.
