An Integrated Baseline Review (IBR) is a joint customer/contractor activity walking through and assessing the Performance Measurement Baseline (PMB). IBRs are typically performed within a few months after a contract has been awarded, although they can be performed at any time, including pre-contract award.
The purpose of an IBR is to:
verify the technical content of the Performance Measurement Baseline (PMB)
assess the accuracy of the related resources, budgets, and schedules
identify potential risks
determine corrective actions, if necessary, to build a realistic plan that the customer and contractor agree to
In a DoD environment, an IBR is treated as a formal event and usually involves considerable preparation and follow up. IBR practices vary across civilian agencies and are often less formal. Regardless, IBRs are generally recognized as a significant program management event and are a critical milestone for the success of the program and your relationship with your client.
Some agencies publish IBR guides to describe the process they use. Some examples are:
