Project Close-Out Report

The Project Close-Out Report is the project’s epilogue. It records the comparison between the initial intent of the project and what the project actually delivered. It also records the closing of all remaining open issues, documents any significant changes that occurred in the project during the development and solution deployment, and provides information on the vision for future projects. This is not an evaluation document – the final project analysis is recorded in the Post Project Analysis document.

This document signals the project’s end. While projects are constantly conducted in most environments, often one right after another, there is a need to declare each project complete. This allows the customer to present their management with their solution and begin to demonstrate the business value gained by the solution. It also provides closure to the project team allowing them to engage fully in other activities.
