This knowledge allows the Government to identify and adjust to supply chain problems in order to take appropriate corrective actions. IBex was developed as an Industrial Preparedness Measure (IPM) in order to gain global commercial asset visibility to support US Military operations and natural disasters, and to gain access to these commercial capabilities if required. As DLA's mission is to respond quickly to worldwide events, IBex was formed to enhance strategic partnerships with industry experts, to allow government planners to leverage the expertise of the commercial sector. •2.2 Objectives, Roles, and Responsibilities The IBex Program objectives are to: •• Purchase information on global logistical capabilities for commercial commodity assets, facilities, equipment, and personnel •• Improve the ability of global commercial sectors to respond to the mobilization needs of the U.S. Government in the event of a surge situation •• Reduce the overall costs to the government involved in planning and maintaining visibility over commercial global logistical assets •• Maintain industrial base vigilance over assets that can be utilized during a contingency or national emergency.

Access will only be needed during normal business hours, though may also be performed in conjunction with actual military exercises. Examples of verification methods are as follows: The contractor will be required to participate and assist the government in verifying information by an online or paper test. The test will be accompanied by an on-site visit to the contractor's facility or an electronic request on short notice. The contractor will be presented with a random list of logistics supplies or services for a particular geographic area. The contractor will then be requested to demonstrate the ability to provide the supplies or services on the list.

(ii) VOLUME II- PAST PERFORMANCE: The Government will evaluate past performance of current or previous contracts for relevancy (within the last 3 years) based on how well the contractor performed on projects of similar dollar value, scope, and complexity. Offerors are advised that the Government may use past performance information obtained from centralized past performance databases and sources other than those identified by the offeror and the information obtained may be used for both the responsibility determination and the best value decision. The absence of past performance data will be rated neither favorably nor unfavorably. Contracts listed may include those entered into with Government agencies or private sectors. For contractors with no relevant corporate past performance, the Government may take into account information regarding the past performance of predecessor companies, key personnel with relevant past performance, or subcontractors that will perform key aspects of the requirement. The Government will evaluate the Past Performance Elements specified in the Past Performance Questionnaire, Attachment 1. This volume shall be organized into the following sections: (1) Section 1 - Contract Descriptions.
