ABOUT THE PHILIPPINE QUALITY AWARD PROGRAM

The Philippine Quality Award Program is a global competitiveness template that aims to encourage and engage public and private organizations and other stakeholders to strive for and attain performance excellence. It is a national award program that recognizes achievements of public and private sector organizations in their journey towards performance excellence.

HISTORY

The PQA is the centerpiece program of the National Action Agenda for Productivity (NAAP), the blueprint for the country's integrated approach to improve economy-wide productivity during the term of former President Fidel V. Ramos in response to the growing challenges of globalization. It was created through Executive Order 448 on October 3, 1997 and on February 28, 2001 it was institutionalized through the signing of Republic Act 9013, also known as the Philippine Quality Award Act (See Implementing Rules and Regulations). The PQA sets a standard of excellence to help Filipino organizations achieve world-class performance and serves as a "template" for competitiveness based on the principles of Total Quality Management (TQM). It is a national quality award comparable with the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA) of the US and those in Europe and Asia.

OBJECTIVES

The PQA has three objectives, which are as follows:

1. To promote standards in organizational performance comparable to those of leading business abroad, pursuant to the country's effort to be globally competitive;

2. To establish a national system for assessing quality and productivity performance, thus providing local organizations regardless of size, sector and maturity with criteria and guidelines for self-assessment to guide their quality and productivity improvement efforts; and

3. To recognize organizations in both the private and public sector which excel in quality management and overall organizational performance, thus providing Philippine industries with benchmarks and models to emulate.
