OUR STORY

The Quality Texas Foundation (QTF) is a NFP 501(c)3 corporation registered in the State of Texas. In 1990 the concept of a state quality award was introduced to and supported by the Governor of Texas and followed the model set by the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Collaborative efforts between the Governor's office, the Texas Department of Commerce, and Texas businesses made it possible to create QTF initially. A committee of representatives from Texas organizations created the Quality Texas Foundation. The Award is available for organizations in manufacturing, service, small business, for profits, government, military, education, healthcare, and nonprofit sectors.
