Regardless whether a successful project is completed by inclusion, integration, or extinction, a plan must be developed to terminate it. An organization that is project-oriented may have a "termination manager" whose primary responsibility is to effectively and efficiently end projects. The duties of a termination manager may include the following:
Ensure the project is complete.
Ensure delivery and client acceptance.
Prepare a final report.
Ensure that all bills have been paid and that the final invoice has been sent to the client.
Redistribute personnel, materials, equipment, and any other resources.
Determine what records (manuals, reports, and other paperwork) are to be kept and place them in storage.
Assign responsibility for product support, if necessary.
Oversee the closing of the project's books.
