Are you talking about the "book" that is signed off by the customer,
acknowledging that the deliverable is done and I'm ready to receive the

CAP - Customer Acceptance Package

Includes the Scope documentation, copy of signed contract, liens and UCC
documents, completed punch lists, deliverable lists and specifications,
engineering materials, environmental impacts, approvals, proof of
deliveries, etc.

A year from now, when someone says "What did we buy?", the PM drops this 10
pound document on their desk.

Thanks to Tricia, Beth, Dana, Barb, and Bill...

any project. "Release Notice", the currently used
title, is too similar-sounding to "Release Notes", one
of my Customer Documents.


PS: I goofed. The message under this title was
intended for the PV manager, not the list, but I had
to shut-down quickly, and hit "Send" instead of

> The following were suggested, so far:

> Release Verification
> Release Summary
> Release Sign-off
> Turnover doc (blueberry? apple? cherry turnover?)
> Handover doc
