332 — Baldrige National Quality Program

Jul 15, 2002 | Conteúdos Em Ingles

The Foundation for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award was created to provide the private sector a means of accomplishing the following Award objectives: raise sufficient funds to establish an endowment which, when supplemented by fees from Award applicants, would permanently fund the Program; oversee the investment of endowment funds; review Program accomplishments; disburse required funds to the National Institute of Standards and Technology; and review the plan and approve associated funds requirements for subsequent years to ensure a successful Award program. In 1998, the President and U.S. Congress approved legislation that made education and health care organizations eligible to participate in the Award Program. The Foundation is currently securing funds to sustain this part of the Award program, as it did successfully with the creation of the Baldrige Award in 1987. Leaders of prominent organizations have been selected to serve as Foundation Trustees to ensure that the Foundation’s objectives of supporting the Award process are accomplished. In addition, a broad cross-section of organizations from throughout the United States provide financial support to the Foundation. The list below includes the Foundation’s Founders, Contributors, Officers, Directors, and Trustees
