What is an Integrated Baseline Review?

Posted by Pinnacle Management Systems, Inc. on Wednesday, August 21, 2013

An Integrated Baseline Review (IBR) is a joint customer/contractor activity walking through and assessing the Performance Measurement Baseline. Integrated Baseline Reviews are typically performed within a few months after a contract has been awarded, although they can be performed at any time, even pre-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

In a DOD environment an Integrated Baseline Review is typically a formal event and can involve considerable preparation and follow up. IBR practices vary in other agencies and are often less formal. However, IBRs are generally recognized as a significant program management event with potential consequences for the program and contractor.

The IBR is a critical milestone for the success of a program and your relationship with your client. How do determine if your program is ready for an IBR?
