Project Handoff Checklist

This document summarizes the handoff requirements for project acceptance.

Maintenance Hand-over Process

As projects are being kicked off and targeted for a specific release, the product team uses project
lifecycle milestones to gauge the progress of a project, its ability to integrate into the product and its risks
to the release itself. The following document outlines the key deliverables that are required to be
completed by the projectsat the end of three gates (requirements, development and project testing cut-
offs). The ability to complete those deliverables by the project is required, and failing to do so on time will
be put into consideration by the product team when assessing the risk level of a project.

From time to time, situations will arise where it is not feasible for a product-related project to fully comply
with the SDLC or to meet all the maintenance handover prerequisites. In these cases, pre-approval for
an exception must be sought and accepted. All exceptions must be granted in advance of the project
being finalized, i.e. prior to a proposal, CR, SOW, etc. being presented to an existing or potential client.
All exception requests must be made to the manager of product development. They must, however,
ultimately be approved by the full management team.

Acceptance of the above deliverables is at the discretion of the product manager. Irresolvable disputes
between a project and the product manager may be escalated to the management team (through the
manager of product development) for resolution.
