Based on the criteria for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the WSQA has four possible recognition levels: Commitment, Achievement, Leadership and Excellence.

Based on the company’s written application, Dri-Eaz qualified for a site visit by WSQA examiners. The WSQA panel of judges deemed the application and site visit results worthy of the Achievement Level, indicating that Dri-Eaz “demonstrated a serious commitment to excellence and a process for continuous improvement,” according to WSQA guidelines.
