April 18, 2023 – The Department of Education (DepEd) is in coordination with the Inter-Agency Task Force on the Harmonization of National Government Performance Monitoring, Information and Reporting Systems (AO25 Secretariat) and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) on the Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) of its personnel.

The Department has already completed the submission to the AO25 Secretariat of the requirements for staff eligible to receive the PBB for 2021.

We understand that it is undergoing assessment now, and we look forward to its release as soon as possible.

We urge DepEd personnel not to fall into the treacherous tales intended to ignite distrust and anger against the agency —whipped up by shadowy groups whose intentions to cause harm and destroy are disguised as concern.

Thank you.
