The Department of Education (DepEd) has started the release of the teachers’ Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) for Fiscal Year 2017 with seven regional offices in the country as the first recipients.

The PBB, the new teachers’ bonus, will be given to employees based on their contribution to the accomplishment of their Department’s overall targets and commitments.

Under the PBB, units of Departments will be ranked according to their performance. The personnel in these units shall also be ranked. The ranking of units and personnel will be based on their actual performance at the end of the year, as measured by verifiable, observable, credible and sustainable indicators of performance.

Regions IV-A (CALABARZON), IV-B (MIMAROPA) and the National Capital Region have already begun releasing the top-up bonus.

Regions V, VII, XI and XII are also among the list of regions to release the teachers’ incentives.

DepEd Region III, on the other hand, was the first to release the 2017 PBB to its school-based personnel last 21 January.

The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Central Office (CO) already endorsed the processing and release of funds for Regions I, II, VIII, IX, X, and Cordillera Administrative Region to the respective DBM Regional Offices.
