Baldrige Program's External Review Kicks Off

Review will assess how Baldrige Performance Excellence Program can best advance U.S. competitiveness

Published: Thursday, December 1, 2022 - 12:00

(NIST: Gaithersburg, MD) -- The Baldrige Performance Excellence Program (BPEP) has announced that a firm has been selected and will soon begin the planned comprehensive, independent review of the program, with the aim of helping BPEP increase its reach and impact.

Rios Partners was selected following a request for quotations from small businesses through the GSA eBuy process. The process included an extensive review of the proposals by a technical evaluation team consisting of BPEP and U.S. Dept. of Commerce (DOC) representatives as well as a final assessment performed by the NIST contracting officer and legal staff.

The program review will assess how BPEP can best advance U.S. competitiveness and address the challenges most relevant in today’s business environment, as well as examine how the program’s impact and accessibility could be increased. The output of this process will inform how the program can best be positioned for maximal future impact to our nation.
