During the Retire Phase the system is successfully shut down in a controlled manner. Extensive planning is done in order to define all the tasks that must be completed to decommission the system. Any remaining activities must be transitioned to a different process or system, contracts will be closed out, data needs to be archived according to the System of Record Notice (SORN) or other guidelines, and hardware must be disposed of in accordance with Federal best practices.
- Archive any data according to the SORN, if present, or other Federal regulation.
- Close out all related contractual actions and agreements related to the system
- Properly dispose of hardware or infrastructure used by the system.
