I. Abstract

    President Trump has outlined key workforce policy priorities 
through two Executive Orders. In June 2017, he signed the Presidential 
Executive Order 13801 Expanding Apprenticeships in America to ``provide 
more affordable pathways to secure, high paying jobs by promoting 
apprenticeships and effective workforce development programs.'' In July 
2018, he signed the Executive Order 13845 Establishing the President's 
National Council for the American Worker as amended by Executive Order 
13853 (83 FR 35099 as amended by 83 FR 65073), ``to work with private 
employers, educational institutions, labor unions, other non-profit 
organizations, and State, territorial, tribal, and local governments to 
update and reshape our education and job training landscape so that it 
better meets the needs of American students, workers, and businesses.'' 
The National Council is creating a national workforce strategy in 
accordance with the Trump Administration's workforce policy priorities

companies, trade associations, and unions have signed the Pledge, 
contributing to over 15.8 million new education and training 
opportunities for American students and workers over the next five 
years.
    The Department of Commerce through the National Institute of 
Standards and Technology's Baldrige Performance Excellence program is 
creating a new Presidential Award to recognize demonstrated excellence 
in implementing the Pledge to America's Workers. This program fulfills 
the requirements of both Executive Orders, each of which called for the 
creation of programs to recognize excellence in employer training 
investments. The Department of Commerce will administer the award
