Does anyone know exactly what this means? Sign off on? to be-processes?

Thank you so much for your reply!

After a quick bit of research... Jul 21, 2012

What an awful string of jargon!
To 'sign off' on something means to approve it.

I have never heard of 'to be' processes but it wasn't too difficult to find an answer from google:

process modeling is widely viewed as a critical component in successful business process management (BPM). It is used to map out an organization’s current (or “as-is”) processes to create a baseline for process improvements and to design future (or “to-be”) processes with those improvements incorporated.

Incidentally, your question could have been presented with a bit more context and clarity!

Yes, to approve Jul 21, 2012

To approve of transfer, especially: transfer of property, transfer of rights. In relation to letters -- just to sign.
