Application Content and Format
The content and formatting requirements for Baldrige Award applications are identical whether you submit your application on paper or on CD. We reserve the right to return incomplete applications and those that don’t meet these requirements. If you have questions, call 877-237-9064, option 3.
In your application, include information on all of your organization’s units or subunits. Don’t add links to Web sites. Examiners base their evaluations solely on information within your application.
Format your application according to the requirements in the Application Content and Format (PDF) file. If your submission does not meet these requirements, we’ll notify you that your application has been rejected. You will have 72 hours or until the original due date, whichever is later, to resubmit your application in the required format. Resubmitted applications must be postmarked within that time frame and shipped via an overnight delivery service. For an example of the required format, see the 2013 Collin Technologies Case Study.
