U.S. Air Force and Boeing Complete KC-46A IBR

One of the first major steps with the execution of a new contract by the Defense Department is the Integrated Baseline Review (IBR). This is a meeting between the contractor and the Government acquisition community to review the contract and establish cost and schedule parameters. The data will be part of the Earned Value Management System (EVMS) used to measure the contract, and Boeing’s, performance and how well it is remaining on cost and schedule.

The IBR for this contract was completed in late August. According to Boeing the IBR went well and the program is grounded for success. The KC-46A will next have its design reviews and plans to deliver the first aircraft in 78 months. The flight of the first test aircraft will be in 2015.
