Backing up to the major process group level, I typically find the closing processes are de-emphasized in software projects, especially if they are performed in-house or by a regular team of remote contractors.  I usually just have to gather up the records and documents and conduct a lessons learned.  Since these projects typically start with less tangible estimating methods, saving information about this aspect of the project is often the most useful for future projects.
