EU Project Closure Guidance

Project closure is a key step in the life cycle of a project and should be considered and planned for carefully.

It is important that closure procedures start in good time, as a key risk at the end of the project is failure to ensure correct use and implementation of the project exit strategy.

This could lead to unnecessarily lengthy closure e.g. inadequate information not being provided from across the project’s joint sponsors or deliverers / contractors, failure to cease delivery in a timely fashion, inability to submit the final financial claim to required timescales or rushing to complete the final evaluation etc.

For more information please refer to WEFO’s Best Practice Guide - Preparing for Project Closure.
