GUIDELINES ON THE GRANT OF PERFORMANCE-BASED BONUS TO THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION EMPLOYEES AND OFFICIALS FOR FISCAL YA 2018
1.With the thrust of the current administration to tighten the advocacy for intensified public accountability, heightened transparency, stronger fiscal discipline, and more efficient government processes, the government is leveraging the priorities of its Results-Based Performance Management System (RBPMS) and its people-centered Performance-Based Incentive System (PBIS) through requirements ad conditions aiming to fight corruption, achieve higher citizen satisfaction, and implement a firmer validation process to recognize outstanding performance in government service.
2.In May 28, 2018, the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on the Harmonization of National Government Performance Monitoring, Information, and Reporting Systems under Administrative Order (AO) No. 25 s. 2011 issued Memorandum Circular (MC) No. 2018-1 entitled Guidelines on the Grant of the Performance-Based Bonus for Fiscal Year 2018 under Executive Order N. 80 s. 2012 and Executive Order No. 201 s. 2016, which lay down the requirements, conditions, and mechanisms on the grant of the Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) for fiscal year (FY) 2018.
EO No. 80, s. 2012 directs the adoption of the PBIS for government employees, consisting of the Productivity Enhancement Incentive (PEI) and the PBB. It is based on the principle that service delivery by the bureaucracy can be improved by linking personnel incentives to the office or deliver unit’s performance, and by recognizing ad rewarding exempla performance.
EO No. 201, s. 2016 provides that the compensation ad position classification shall be revised or updated to strengthen the PBIS in recognition of government personnel who play a greater role and carry a heavier responsibility in attaining performance targets and delivering results. It also reiterates that the AO25 IATF shall prescribe the conditions on eligibility and procedures for the grant of the enhanced PBB, including the raking system to recognize different levels of performance. One of the sad criteria is the agency submission of a System of Raking Delivery Units.
3.In view of the above, this Order aims to establish a PBB system by which DepEd’s performance as a organization and its personnel are evaluated and incentivized in a verifiable, credible, and standardized manner. It seeks to give monetary incentive to individual personnel based on his/her performance in achieving the expected outputs of his/her function. Ultimately, the aim of the grant of PBB in DepEd is to motivate higher performance and greater accountability, and ensure the achievement of education targets and commitments under the five (5) Key Result Areas (KRs) laid down in EO No. 43, s. 2011 and the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2017-2022.
