End project report

  • The End Project Report is part of Stage 5: Handover and closure of the project lifecycle and working towards approval at Gateway 5: Stand down.

    Who prepares the End Project Report?

    The Project Manager is responsible for preparing and producing the End Project Report.  The Project Manager is to actively engage with the core project team and other key stakeholders for input into the project and its performance. Before going to the Board for approval, the Project Manager must obtain the Project Sponsor/Executive sign-off. 

    What is the purpose of the End Project Report?

    The End Project Report presents the summary of performance of the project against the authorised PID, Business Case and Project Plan. 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 a Benefits Management Plan.   It is at this stage that no issue should be outstanding and that the report has the agreement of the appointed Project Assurance team.

    The appointed Board will review the information and make an informed decision as to the performance of the project.  On approval of the End Project Report, the project will be formally closed and handed over to the appointed business owner within the Faculty/Directorate.  The Project Manager and core project team will be stood down.
