Award Process Hotline
Welcome to Consensus Review! During this part of the award process, your team will create a scorebook detailing the strengths and opportunities for improvement (OFIs) that will help your designated applicant move to the next level of performance excellence. This scorebook, composed of comments and scores, will represent the collective knowledge and analytical skills of the team and will be the basis of the feedback report sent to the applicant.
During Consensus Review, you will use the Baldrige Online Scorebook Solution (BOSS) to develop and refine your comments and scores. In the right-hand column of this page, you will find several tools to help you during the evaluation process. Please note the documents “Examiner Role in the Consensus Process Chart" (PDF), which will give you a flowchart of the consensus process, and ”Step-by-Step for Consensus" (PDF), which provides more detailed instructions on how to proceed. Another tool designed for your use in the evaluation is the “Considerations for Reviewing Small Organizations (PDF)”. Please review these tools to help you get started.
Enjoy your Consensus Review experience!
