Blinded Applicant Scoring Data

The Baldrige Program is pleased to announce the release of blinded applicant scoring data covering 17 years from 1990 to 2006. The data are being made publicly available in response to many requests and to facilitate further analysis by interested researchers. We are working on creating unique identifiers which will allow users to track specific applicants over time, while still protecting confidentiality. If you should have questions about the data, please contact our customer service line at 301-975-2036.
