DepEd purchase laptops for 68,500 personnel
The Department of Education said it will give laptops to 68,500 personnel, in preparation for the next school year as face-to-face classes is still uncertain.
Undersecretary for Finance Annalyn Sevilla told Laging Handa briefing that the purchase is under Department of Budget and Management’s procurement service.
Sevilla added that teachers will be part of the recipients.
Funding source will be from the Bayanihan to Recover as One Act, or the Bayanihan 2 law.
Sevilla also mentioned other financial aid from the Bayanihan 2 law such as: P1.2 billion for teachers’ internet allowance, P200 million for DepEd TV’s operations, P150 million for printed modules, and P50 million for DepEd Radio.
“We are also waiting for other financial assistance in the proposed Bayanihan 3 law,” Sevilla added.
