Before the actions do occur, Production Support should ensure
the criteria set to handover have been met. Sign off should
be from the senior manager(s) in Production Support. There
should be a thorough review of the material and status of
the project and only then should the handover proceed.
actions may need to occur however they should be documented
in the Handover Plan. The handover may entail handing various
items to different people to manage. These may include software,
infrastructure, training documentation, maintenance and
support, service desk, specifications and system documentation,
security, batch processing, licensing, maintenance contracts
and financial responsibility.
The work of the Project Team is now complete. All that remains
is to close down the project and undertake a PIR (Project
Implementation Review). Many of the team will now disperse
and only a core remain.
