The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship between organizational excellence and organizational commitment (OC) in physical education (P.E.) general offices of Iran's selected provinces. Validity of the questionnaires was verified by the experts and their reliability also calculated in a pilot study (&alpha=0.928 and &alpha=0.83 respectively for EFQM and Allen, Meyer & Smith's OC questionnaires). 437 questionnaires distributed among the Physical Education general offices staff (ten provinces selected by classified random method) 337 questionnaires included in statistical analysis. A positive significant relationship was observed between organizational excellence and commitment (r= 0.546, p= 0.001). A positive relationship was observed between organizational excellence and each of the organizational commitment sub-scales (affective, continuance and normative) (p<0.01). Affective commitment had strongest correlation (r=0.551, p=0.001) and the continuance commitment had the weakest (r=0.309, p=0.001). Also, there was strong significant relationship between stockholders and the results of organizational excellence model (r=0.864, p=0.001).
