• Teachers to receive bonuses this month

    8

    THE Department of Education (DepEd) on Friday announced that the 600,000 public school teachers throughout the country would receive their performance based-bonus (PBB) before the end of this month or by early November.

    Jesus Mateo, DepEd assistant secretary for planning, said the department has allocated at least P5 billion for the bonuses of all public school teachers and non-teaching personnel.

    PBB is one of two incentives under Executive Order 80 signed by President Benigno Aquino 3rd on July 2012. The other benefit he signed is the productivity enhancement incentive (PEI) amounting to P5,000 and is given to all the employees and officials of the government.

    It varies from P5,000 to a maximum of P35,000 depending on the performance rating of individual employees and the agency or office to which they belong.

    Previously, teachers and government employees received a one-time PEI amounting to P10,000 every December.

    “It [PBB] will be released within October or November,” Mateo told this reporter in a text message.

    “All DepEd employees will receive their bonuses between this month and next month depending on the completeness in the submission of requirements,” the DepEd official
    said.

    Mateo added that the department is working to make sure that the 600,000 strong DepEd workforce will get their performance-based incentives.

    Of this number, 585,000 are teachers, he said.

    “Roughly 600,000 teachers and non-teaching personnel, including those who were hired last year, can get their bonuses as long as they have already complied with the requirements,” Mateo said.

    He, however, clarified that the bonuses were based on last year’s performance-based incentives because PBBs could not be given after the school year.

    Mateo said an inter-agency task force headed by the Department of Budget and Management will validate and process the requirements of the teachers applying for the performance bonuses.

    School divisions, he added, must secure the requirements to receive the performance-based incentives by submitting liquidation reports of the maintenance and operating expenses, national achievement test, and governance condition transparency.

    The Teachers’ Dignity Coalition earlier slammed the Education department for another delay in the bonuses that supposedly had to be given before the end of this year.

Lagi na lang naiisantabi ang mga guro, pinahihirapan sa mga sistema n sila lang ang nasusunod, ang daming demand sa guro, ang laki pa ng tax na kinakaltas sa sahod, wala pang increase, pataas ng pataas ang mga bilihin. Pero sa eleksyon tayo pa rin ang nag sisilbi sa mga boto para sa kanila. ewan ko ba sa mga yan, walang habag sa mga kaguruan!

      This performance-based bonus has really became another burden psychologically among DepEd employees. They made an announcement that it will be released last September, then, October, but why until now, none yet.The concerned should understand that this PBB means a lot since it is one way to survive

        in one hearsay suggest that as early as August 2014, budget in one division was already downloaded from the DBM and was being “Time Deposited” in their bank for 3 months in order for the officials to gain from the interest.
