The New Mexico Performance Excellence Awards (NMPEA) program is New Mexico's only awards program based on the Malcolm Baldrige Framework for Performance Excellence (Executive Order 2012-003).

Why Baldrige? 

The Purpose of Baldrige is Simple: To Help Organizations of all sizes and across all sectors

Going through this process will:

  • Help your Organization reach its Goals

Benefits of Baldrige

for every sector


How Does it Work?

it all boils down to three questions:

  1. Is your organization doing as well as it could?
  2. How do you know?
  3. What and how should your organization improve or change?

In a Self-Assessment, your Organization answers those questions to learn:

  • What you're doing right
  • What you aren't doing at all
  • What you could do better
  • How effective you are

It's About Results

The NMPEA is more than a trophy for your lobby.  

There are 7 Categories in the Baldrige Criteria - and when assessments are scored, the Results category makes up almost HALF of an organization's potential points.
