Every other week, the Secretary of DepEd- Sec Leonor Magtolis-Briones, as supported by the DepEd Public Affairs Office, conducts its Regional Press Conference to give updates to our stakeholders and answer queries, issues and concerns related to delivery of basic education.

Yesterday, April 30, we were in Region 11 and the office of Undersecretary of Finance reported some important updates on compensation, allowances and benefits, including the Performance Based Bonus (PBB).

Here is the excerpt of the said report regarding PBB:

1. Teaching and majority of the non-teaching personnel of the Department of Education (DepEd) are set to receive their 2019 Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) after the IATF (AO25TF) declared the Department eligible for the annual incentive.

2. After the confirmation of eligibility of DepEd by the AO25TF, the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) will facilitate the release of the bonuses.

3. The school-based personnel will be the first ones to receive their bonuses, then the SDO-based personnel who are assigned in the schools comes next, followed by School Division Offices (SDOs), Regional Offices (ROs), and lastly, the Central Office (CO).

4. DBM will DIRECTLY release the PBB funds to the DepEd Regional Offices (ROs), then to the SDOs and to the respective personnel eligible for the grant of PBB.

5. Pay-out for PBB 2019 will depend on the submission of validated reports from schools and field offices. The processing time of which by AO25TF depends on the completeness of documents submitted during the validation period (ranking, eligibility and isolation list) and downloading of funds from DBM to the ROs, ROs to SDOs and SDOs to personnel.

6. See the list of status of submission of validated documents per region. First come, first serve basis will be followed in the validation of the DBM.
