The Department of Budget and Management said Thursday it released P11.6 billion for the FY 2021 performance-based bonus (PBB) of 920,073 personnel in public elementary and secondary schools.

Budget Secretary Amenah Pangandaman, in a statement, reassured Department of Education’s (DepEd) teaching personnel of the release of the bonus.

“The DBM stands with our nation’s educators and recognizes their extraordinary work. We are one with our teachers in the pursuit of the immediate release of their PBB,” she said.

The agency said that as of Sept. 1, 2023, all 16 regional offices of DepEd released the corresponding special allotment release orders (SAROs) and notice of cash allocations (NCAs) to the DepEd for the FY 2021 PBB of the school-based personnel.

The SAROs/NCAs were issued after the DBM’s evaluation and validation of the required updated documents, which DepEd submitted from April to August 2023. The basis for granting the FY 2021 bonus is DepEd’s accomplishments for FY 2021.
