Malcolm Baldrige type highest award at the state level know as Iowa Recognition Performance Excellence.

(IRPE) 2009 Gold Level Award achievement.

The center had bestowed the gold-level award only three times in its 10 years of existence. John Deere Credit Corporation achieved the first IRPE Gold Level Award in 2006, second by Eaton Corporation in 2007. No one received any in 2008 and the third to receive this prestigious recognition in 2009 is Iowa State University’s FP&M organization.

ISU’S FP&M also received the Leadership Commitment Awards in 2004 and 2006 for producing the maximum number of state examiners from any industry. The Iowa Quality Center consists of 180 educations, government, manufacturing and business groups working toward continuous improvements in their organizations. The Iowa Recognition for Performance Excellence Awards recognizes high performance management principles.

The Iowa Recognition for Performance Excellence (IRPE) is an assessment process based on the Baldrige National Quality Program. The prestigious Iowa Recognition for Performance Excellence Awards were established to recognize those businesses and organizations in the state that have completed a strenuous review and evaluation of their leadership, strategic planning, customer focus, measurement, analysis, knowledge management, work force engagement, process management, and business results. The process is aligned with the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, and the Criteria for Performance Excellence are used for the assessment. There is no monetary award, but those who complete the process say it helps them identify strengths and opportunities for improvement within their companies, provides training for continuous improvement and leadership development, and assures customer focus and efficiency within their operations. This process is a proven method for organizations to achieve their highest potential and become more competitive in the world marketplace. For this reason, the process is used by more than 40 states to support their economic development efforts.
