DBM approves increase in DepEd fund

The Department of Budget and Management(DBM) approved the proposed increase in the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Government Assistance and Subsidies (GAS) programs under its Tier 1 budget.

DepEd said this would now allow it to fulfill its mandate to expand access to quality education.

The total DepEd Tier 1 Level budget approved by the DBM is P626.18 billion, as contained in National Budget Memorandum No. 142 — “Budget Call for FY 2023.”

Out of that amount, the Senior High School Voucher Program of the DepEd will get P39.33 billion.

“Meanwhile, ESC (Educational Service Contracting) got an approved Php 11.05 billion budget which covers 1,031,193 ESC grantees for SY 2023-2024,”  the DepEd added.

DepEd said this would also allow it to make full payments to concerned private schools within one budget year.

“DepEd expresses its gratitude to the DBM and the national government for their unwavering support of the voucher programs under GAS. The Department affirms its commitment in continuously implementing its voucher program efficiently and effectively,” it said.

  1. Hopefully may guidelines and DBM budget n po sana ang SHS reclassification of items because 11 years in Deped service na po kami as we are from JHS transferred to SHS ,we are left behind in terms of promotion esp.reclassification of item.

  2. Sana po mabigyan na din ng pansin Ang kelangan ng mga Special Education Teachers para sa teaching aids na kelangan nila para sa kanilang Learners with special needs, like free trampoline, toy slides needed inside the classroom, therapy ball, free assessment, toys needed, blocks, books at marami pang iba.

    One thing that DEPED should be thankful if the ORGANIZATION could be out from GSIS.. DEPED should create another AGENCY like what the UNIFORMED did,,

    1. Hoping that DBM will also include in its budgeting the reclassification of T3 to MT1 positions in Ormoc City Division po. As far as we know, the pertinent papers and leadership potentials for promotions to MT positions as per guidelines are the bases in promoting/reclassifying T3-MT positions in other divisions, but here in our division, we were screened three times (validation of pertinent papers and leadership potentials, panel interview and written exam). I think we’re the only sole division among all the divisions in the country having this kind of screening for MT aspirants. Though’ I must say it was tough, yet we were assessed and ranked accordingly. It’s just so frustrating that after those series of nervewracking experiences, we were left with a copy of DBM’s response upon the request of the said division a “no faborable action” from the said department (DBM) due to the exceed of the number of MT positions in Ormoc City Division. May they reconsider our division’s plea, anyways, that is for reclass, vice your own item🙏🙏🙏

  4. i think its time na also that the government will look into the Step Increment pay na tag 200 plus lang in every 3 years..

    1. Tama mam . Sana gawing mas mataas nd ung 200 lang. Isa pa yan na nakakatawa 200 pesos every 3 years hahahah..Sana rin wag ng idaan sa tranche ung pagbibigay ng increase isahang bigayan na sana para maramdaman nmn natin ang pagbabago sa salary po natin

  5. Sana po bigyang pansin din po ang mga non-teaching na kasama ang mga teaching staff na nakaka receive sila ng hazard post pay.

  6. Istorya…wala pa budget call; wala pa DBM Sec; di pa nagsisomula an budget process for 2023..too early to tell
