The Partnership for Excellence (TPE) is Ohio, Indiana and West Virginia's Baldrige-based awards program. TPE assists organizations using the internationally-recognized Baldrige Excellence Framework. TPE's primary product is a comprehensive assessment that helps organizational leaders better understand and prioritize key strengths and opportunities for improvement. While the assessment is the foundation, TPE's main focus is on organizational learning, innovation, resource optimization, continuous improvement, and results.
All applicants were rigorously evaluated by an independent board of examiners in seven areas defined by the Baldrige Excellence Framework: leadership; strategy; customers; measurement, analysis,and knowledge management; workforce; operations; and results. The evaluation processfor each of the recipients included more than 1,000 hours of review and a three-day virtual site visit by a team of examiners to clarify questions and verify information in the application. An independent panel of judges reviewed each organization’s evaluation, approved the final feedback reports, and developed their award recommendations, which were ratified by the TPE Board of Trustees.

The TPE judges may also recognize applicants with a Category Lead Performer Award. These applicants exhibit role model performance in one of the Baldrige Criteria categories while in pursuit of TPE’s top level award. Platinum level recipients are not considered for this award.
