Baldrige Program's External Review Kicks Off

The Baldrige Performance Excellence Program (BPEP) is pleased to announce 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 Department of Commerce (DOC) representatives and 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 its 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.
