Project Acceptance

Formal Project Acceptance Requires a Signature by the Project Sponsor or Customer. Before a project can be closed out the Project Manager needs formal acceptance of the project by the Project Sponsor or Customer. Formal acceptance is one step of the close out process and doesn't release the Project Manager or resources from the Project. It is the Project Manager's responsibility to release resources during the closing process and ensure that all closing tasks are completed.
