An End Project Report is used during project closure to review how the project performed against the version of the Project Initiation

Documentation used to authorize it. It also allows the:

  • Passing on of any lessons that can be usefully applied to other projects
  • Passing on of details of unfinished work, ongoing risks or potential product modifications to the group charged with future

Advice The End Project Report is derived from the: Project Initiation Documentation; Business Case; Project Plan; Benefits Review Plan; Issue Register, Quality Register and Risk Register; Lessons Report and End Stage Reports (and Exceptions Reports, if applicable).

An End Project Report can take a number of formats, including presentation to the Project Board (physical meeting or conference call), as a document or email issued to the Project Board or as an entry in a project management tool.

The following quality criteria should be observed:

  • Any abnormal situations are described, together with their impact
  • At the end of the project, all issues should either be closed or become the subject of a follow-on action recommendation
  • Any available useful documentation or evidence should accompany the follow-on action recommendation(s)
  • Any appointed Project Assurance roles should agree with the report.
