Grant Close-out Procedures

Best Practices


The following document was created after reviewing the close-out procedures for nine higher educational institutions. Most of these were larger public institutions because I found few examples of close-out procedures specific to private liberal arts colleges. The document below reflects the common themes I found in the close-out procedures, and I added some commentary where I thought some explanation would be helpful. I hope this document is helpful as you and your colleagues create close-out procedures for your institution.
