Project closure is a significant and mandatory process, particularly in mega projects. During the closing phase, mega projects often encounter a number of problems including lack of budget, shortage of required resources, disputes and claims. This paper presents a scientific procedure for performing closing process group in mega projects. This study was conducted on a Combined Cycle Power Plant (CCPP) mega project in Esfahan as a case study. A project planning system has been integrated with a continuous project control system in order to execute and utilize this process group. The aim of this paper is to apply an appropriate planning for implementation of the CCPP project in the closing phase with minimum deviation. The proposed closing process consists of a preliminary phase, transition planning, and four major phases, such as physical, contractual, legal and financial closure. After performing the process group, the results of this project were compared with results obtained from similar projects in term of time. Implementing this process group definitely enabled us to meet projects deadline with minimum deviation.
