Close Out Document Introduction - « Lite » version

The purpose of the Close Out Document is to assess the project's performance, identify the lessons learned, and confirm that essential contractual and other project closure activities have been completed. The document also formalizes the transfer of assets, deliverables and all ongoing administrative functions to an in-service business organization. This organization must commit to measure the benefits and outcomes of the product, result or service produced by the project.

The Close Out Document is intended to summarize the project record. The number of sections and the amount of content in each section should reflect the results of the project and the purpose for which it was undertaken. Typically, a Close Out Document for a « Lite » Version project has much less content than one for a « Full » version project or a project subject to Treasury Board oversight.

The Close Out Document is approved at the Close Out Document Approval Control Point.
