It’s a bad answer but because we’re busy with the ongoing contracts and awarding new contracts and unless an invoice comes across the desk that says FINAL in big bold letters, we just don’t make time to focus on the close-outs. Until, of course, we get an audit finding about all those technically complete but not closed contracts we have on our books. Then we scramble, only to find out the vendor archived their files years ago nad has to hunt for the documentation.
