USeP awarded for Mastery in Quality Management by PQA

True to its commitment to quality and excellence, the University of Southeastern Philippines (USeP) has been approved by the Office of the President of the Republic of the Philippines as a recipient of the Philippine Quality Award (PQA) Level III – Recognition for Mastery in Quality Management. This decision follows the finalization of the results of the 26th PQA Assessment Cycle on June 13, 2024.

This resounding good news came in time as the University celebrates its 45th commencement exercises across campuses, hence, it motivated the University community to continually pursue its vision of transforming lives and communities through its services. USeP reaps the award after months of preparations and steadfast work for excellence in its first attempt at PQA application.

USeP underwent formal evaluation last January 31, 2024- February 2, 2024, by competent PQA assessors. During the evaluation, the assessors conducted interviews, evaluation of documents, and live and hybrid site visits of the University campuses. These activities produced a comprehensive report that supported and validated the University’s claims for recognition in quality management.

With this award, USeP adds another accomplishment to its reputable list of recognition in quality management. USeP is an ISO-certified institution and continually excels in other accreditation programs for its academic offerings.

USeP, along with other awardees, will formally receive the award in early July 2024, at the Malacañang Palace in Manila.

Comparable with the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award of the United States and those in Europe and Asia, the PQA program is the highest level of national recognition for exemplary organizational performance in the Philippines. Also, PQA is the centerpiece program of the National Action Agenda for Productivity (NAAP), which is the blueprint for the country’s integrated approach to improve economy-wide productivity in response to growing challenges of globalization started during former President Fidel V. Ramos’ administration.

The PQA has three objectives, which are as follows: (1) To promote standards in organizational performance comparable to those of leading businesses abroad, pursuant to the country’s effort to be globally competitive; (2) To establish a national system for assessing quality and productivity performance, thus providing local organizations regardless of size, sector and maturity with criteria and guidelines for self-assessment to guide their quality and productivity improvement efforts; and (3) To recognize organizations in both the private and public sector which excel in quality management and overall organizational performance, thus providing Philippine industries with benchmarks and models to emulate.

PQA four Levels of Recognition are: Level I – Recognition for Commitment to Quality Management; Level II – Recognition for Proficiency in Quality Management; Level III – Recognition for Mastery in Quality Management; and Level IV – The Philippine Quality Award for Performance Excellence.
