Phase 2: Application

The organisation lodges a completed Application Document and obtains The Exemplar Award Guidelines Manual, (template) Submission Document, Submission Assessment Document, and other supporting documents. The organisation prepares a draft Submission Document at the organisation’s own pace.

The organisation may choose to use The Exemplar Award framework to further develop their system or service before proceeding with the development of a draft Submission Document.

When the organisation feels they are ready to lodge a draft Submission Document, they can move to Phase 3: Submission.

The Submission Document and other supporting documents can be accessed by the tabs below. To access these documents, contact The Exemplar Award Liaison Officer Dr Mark Burgess directly by +61 2 9281 9955, or

Note: The phase 2 documents cannot be access untill an organisation has compelted Phase 1: application. For more information, speak with The Exemplar Award Liaison Officer.

Big thank you for the excellent webinar on NSQHS Standard 5 on Tuesday 17 March. The topic was presented in a very clear way with lots of examples of what surveyors would expect to see when on site.
