A project closure report is a document which formalizes the closure of a project. It provides confirmation that the criteria for customer acceptance have been met and requests sign-off from the project sponsor to close the project. A project closure report includes:
• a detailed list of project completion criteria;
• confirmation that all completion criteria have been met;
• a list of outstanding business activities, risks and issues;
• a set of actions to hand over project deliverables and documentation, terminate supplier agreements, release resources to the business and inform stakeholders of the closure;
• A request for project closure approval.
A project closure report is prepared at the start of the project closure phase by the project manager and is submitted to the project sponsor for sign-off. Following sign-off, a suite of closure activities are undertaken to formally close out the project. The following sections describe how to create a project closure report, providing tables and reallife examples used for projects.
