We "live and breathe" quality and performance improvement and the pursuit of excellence, and are passionate about advancing such a culture in Government! The ASQ Government Division fully grasps the inherent challenges that are unique to the public sector, such as changes in leadership, political agendas, no profit incentives, scarce funds and resources, statutorily imposed obstacles, etc. To advance our mission, we have been developing methods and initiatives for overcoming these challenges and regularly share success stories of where Government "is doing it right".

We invite you to share what is working and lessons learned through our Discussion Board!  

Also, be sure to check out our most recent webinars on our YouTube Channel, watch our Promotional Video and read our latest Newsletter too.

The ASQ Government Division has launched three main member and community initiatives:
  • Center for Electoral Quality and Integrity (CEQI)
  • Center for Quality Standards in Government (CQSG)
  • Government Performance Excellence Forum (GPEF)
Lend your voice, ideas, and suggestions in the relevant discussion areas.
