Summary of Changes/Comments
October 12, 2020 - The Financial Closure of Development Projects policy has been updated with links to the Operational Guidelines for Financial Closure of Projects; the Operating guidelines for MPTF projects; FAQ in Project Closure SharePoint, and the eChecklist in the Atlas Project Closure Workbench. These resources provide a wealth of information to guide offices in the closing of projects - an often undervalued, yet vital part of our work.

March 05, 2020 - The Financial Closure of Development Projects policy is now available in Spanish. To access the document, click on the Spanish language tab.

December 17, 2018 - Section 8 of the Financial Closure of Development Projects was updated to specify that before the status of a project is changed to financially closed, the eChecklist from Atlas Project Closure Workbench must be completed.
