The Department of Education (Deped) has announced that school-based personnel in the department are now eligible to receive the Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018.

Education Secretary Leonor Magtolis Briones said the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has granted Deped’s request for school-based personnel to receive PBB for 2018.

“We are delighted that the DBM has granted our request for reconsideration on the matter of the PBB. We truly appreciate the desire to recognize the contributions of DepEd to the fulfillment of goals of the government,” she said.

In a statement, Deped said the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) has decided to grant the 2018 PBB for teaching and non-teaching school-based personnel in all elementary and secondary schools nationwide.

The PBB is still subject to the submission of DepEd’s school level performance rating and ranking. 

Meawhile, the Education Department will still appeal for re-consideration and exhaust all possible courses of action for its non-school-based personnel to likewise receive the PBB.

“We are still appealing to the DBM and AO25TF to reconsider the grant of eligibility to all DepEd non-teaching staff too, especially that they have been contributors to the improvement of the performance indicators of the DepEd and will be the ones who will be directly exposed to extreme risk and hazards during ECQ in processing the payment of the PBB 2018 for the school-based positions,” Briones said. — AAC
