2. Overview

2.1. Purpose

2.1.1. An End Stage Report is used to give a summary of progress to date, the overall project situation, and sufficient information to ask for a Project Board decision on what to do next with the project.

2.1.2. The Project Board uses the information in the End Stage Report in tandem with the next Stage Plan to decide what action to take with the project: for example, authorize the next stage, amend the project scope, or stop the project.

2.2. Contents

2.2.1. The End Stage Report should cover the following topics.

2.2.2. Project Manager's report

2.3.2. An End Stage 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.

2.3.3. The following quality criteria should be observed:

2.3.3.1. The report clearly shows stage performance against the plan
