|Corporate Governance||160||Customer & Market Focus||90|
|Strategic Planning & Communication||220||Human Resource Focus||250|
|Social Responsibility||70||Information/Risk Management||70|

PHASE – 4
Top Management Meetings
On receipt of the completed questionnaire, a two-member team from our out-sourced partner M/S FAMCO represents MAP for site visit and detailed meetings with top management of each short-listed company. The purpose of these meetings is to verify and obtain a vital, face to face view of the responses to the questionnaire. During these meetings the team not only discusses their management practices but also witnesses the evidence of claims made in the questionnaires as well as policy documents. After the top management meetings the questionnaires are marked.
PHASE – 5
Final Tabulation of Results
The marks obtained by the companies for Management Practices Appraisal on the basis of 1000 marks are recalculated on the basis of 200 points. The Final tabulation is thus done on the basis of 50 points for financial evaluation and 200 points for management practices appraisal, thus maintaining the 20:80 weightage for each aspect. The final result is presented to the Corporate Excellence Award sub-committee which forwards the same to the MAP Executive Committee for approval and announcement.
Under the Awards Scheme, there is one circulatory Trophy for the overall winner in each category namely, Industrial Category and Financial Category. In addition, there are trophies for the top companies in the remaining sectors in both categories and certificates of excellence for not-for-profit organization.
