Dutch term or phrase: laatste puntjes op de i te zetten
A nice way of putting this, please? This is my last question!
(this time!)

"Uiteraad is op grond daarvan besloten om de onderhandelingen met het geselecteerde private consortium in te gaan om de laatste puntjes op de i te zetten"

To discuss final details? To make the last adjustments? To set the last records straight? Other?

Thanks!
