Applications for the IAQ Quality Sustainability Award will be examined in a three-step process. The examination process is confidential and no information about the results will be externally communicated apart from the name(s) of the Award Finalists and the Award Winners. All information provided in the application will be handled in a confidential way except for the One-page summary which can be published for all projects applying for the award.
Every application will be reviewed by the IAQ QiPECTT Evaluation Committee or the corresponding function within the Quality Sustainability Award Partner organizations. As a first step a prequalification review will be performed in order to assure that the application fulfills the requirements, and all necessary information is submitted.
Prequalification requirements are:
Applications that have fulfilled the prequalification requirements will subsequently be evaluated in detail by two independent and trained evaluators of the IAQ QiPECTT Evaluation Committee or the corresponding function at IAQ Quality Sustainability Award Partner organizations. The Evaluation Matrix containing the criteria is given below. The purpose of the evaluation by the IAQ QiPECTT Evaluation Committee is to decide which projects are selected as Award Finalists. Applications that are evaluated and not selected as Award Finalists will be provided a short feedback.
IAQ Quality Sustainability Award Partners organize their local award program and select local award winners out of their finalists using the same criteria. The best project(s) can then be selected as finalists for the Global Award.
Applications evaluated and selected as Global Award Finalists, either by partners or by QiPECTT Evaluation Committee, will be informed and publicly announced and thereby part of the program for the Award conference and ceremony.
3. Evaluation at the Global level
All projects evaluated and selected as Award Finalists will be asked to prepare a short, recorded video presentation to be shown at the award ceremony. A specially composed jury for that event will take the final decision on Global Award Winner(s) of the IAQ Quality Sustainability Award
