The central point of contact for project closure is the project manager, who (hopefully) by this time has proven his or her capability as an effective communicator. A project manager needs to provide effective feedback to (1) management, (2) the client, (3) users, and the (4) project office about the progress on the final steps to completion. This is accomplished by having a project review meeting with the project office manager or direct supervisor. It is at this stage that management may present the project manager with another project or projects or inform him or her of an impending release.
Additionally, the project manager must also document the final project progress on the status report for the project file. The key here is to continue the communication process until the end of the project.
