Project closure report

The project closure report is produced by the project manager (PM) at the end of the project, with input from the core project team and other key stakeholders.

The end project report presents the summary of performance of the project against the authorised project initiation document (PID) and business case. It includes an assessment against the original planned cost, time schedule and tolerances and should be supported by an analysis of lessons learned from the project and the benefits management plan.

At this stage no issues should be outstanding. The report should have sign-off from the appointed project assurance role (if applicable).

The appointed board will review the information and make an informed decision as to the performance of the project. On approval of the project closure report, the project will be formally closed and handed over to the appointed business owner within the faculty/directorate. The PM and core project team will be disbanded.
