Signoff template provides a checklist format for customer
that can be used for reviewing a new system's functionality
and other attributes before closing a purchase order or
accepting a delivery. It includes checklist areas for
functional tests, documentation reviews, issue recording,
enhancement requests.

This form can be used standalone for this purpose, or it can
be used as the short-form checklist and signoff form
accompanying a written User Acceptance Test Plan or Beta
Test Plan (see our templates for those 2 documents).

NOTE: This form can also be adapted for review and
acceptance of any deliverable between a customer and a
provider. Whether the deliverable is a recommendations
report from consultants, a user manual from a technical
publications firm, a physical hardware system, a software
application, a plan for a marketing campaign, etc., this
form can be used to list what's expected by the customer,
record results of the acceptance review or tests, record
open issues to be corrected, and ultimately document
acceptance by the customer.

How to use?
When preparing to accept a deliverable—system, product,
report, etc.—from a supplier, fill out your version of this
form to include the items you want to test and/or review. If
possible, consider ahead of time whether any discrepancies
will be acceptable for each item. Schedule the review/tests
with the supplier and discuss expectations. When you perform
the reviews or tests, mark the performance of each item and
indicate whether each result is acceptable—will the
deliverable be accepted with this issue? Finally, review
overall results with supplier, timeline for issue
resolution, and whether re-test will be required.
