Since 2002, IPMA organizes an annual international competition for projects and program presenting awards to teams that display and can prove great achievements in project and program management. The IPMA Global Project Excellence Awards support project teams in their continuous improvement efforts. Guideline for the assessment is the IPMA Project Excellence Model® (IPMA PEM), described in the IPMA Project Excellence Baseline®. By rewarding teams that prove their success in the three IPMA PEM areas, IPMA recognizes and acknowledges excellent and innovative projects.

The IPMA Project Excellence Model (IPMA PEM) was introduced in 2016 as an updated version of the model that has been in place since 2002. The main purpose of the IPMA PEM is to provide guidance to organizations in assessing the ability of their projects and programs to achieve project excellence. The model is used as the framework which is used for the Project Excellence assessment. The model is based on Total Quality Management and related models such as European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) and identifies three areas: People & Purpose, Processes & Resources and Project Results.
