The Department of Education (DepEd) submitted the first batch of validated reports required for the released of the Performance Based Bonus (PBB). The first batch, which covers 29,284 schools, consists of 145 out of 191 divisions (75.95%) with 409,725 eligible employees.
Teachers, non-teaching and teaching personnel are to receive bonuses ranging from Php 5,000 up to Php 35,000 depending on their performance.
DepEd employees who are recipients of national awards such as Literacy Awards and national awards from the Civil Service Commission and Metrobank Foundation in FY 2012 are already guaranteed beneficiaries of the maximum amount of Php 35,000.
The Interagency Task Force (IATF) will take around a week to process the documents, after which the bonuses would be downloaded to the Regional or Division offices.
The second batch of reports are expected to be completed and submitted to the IATF soon.
Based on Executive Order 80 s2012, the PBB is a scheme that intends to reward government employees based on their performance and promote greater accountability in the public sector.
