From the Paper:

"This is also known as the closing stage of the project. However, though the project has been completed it doesn't mean that everything comes to an end at this point. While the execution of the project ends and the end product has been completed it is at this point that the maintenance and post completion support for the users begins along with health and safety audits etc to ensure that all the necessary safety measures are in place."
