Public school teachers in Bicol to receive performance bonus

LEGAZPI CITY—Over 35,000 public school teachers in Bicol will start receiving their Performance-Based Bonus (PBB) for this year early next month, the regional office of the Department of Education here on Monday announced.

Each classroom teacher in the elementary and secondary levels will receive starting this Oct. 5 an amount ranging from Php5,000 to Php35,000 based on their performance, DepEd Regional Director Ramon Fiel Abcede said.

The DepEd, he noted, evaluates and grants the PBB to all its bureaus or delivery units and employees who have worked diligently and have performed well according to their contribution to the achievement of the department’s overall performance targets. These will, in turn, determine the amount to be received.

Abcede said the DepEd regional office has already gotten the amount from the Department of Budget and Management and will distribute it upon the completion of requirements that schools division heads should submit prior to the processing.

Only classroom teachers are to receive their PBBs out of this initial release. Other DepEd personnel such as non-teaching staff and employees assigned with the regional and division offices are not yet included, he clarified.

The grant is based on Executive Order No. 80 signed by President Benigno S. Aquino III in July 2012, directing the adoption of the Performance-Based Incentive System (PBIS) consists of the Productivity Enhancement Incentive (PEI) and the top-up PBB for government employees.

EO 80 is based on the principle that service delivery by the bureaucracy can be improved by linking personnel incentives to the bureau or delivery unit’s performance, and by recognizing and rewarding exemplary performance to foster teamwork and meritocracy.

Guidelines issued by Sec. Armin Luistro say that PBB shall be given to all personnel in accordance with their contribution to the accomplishment of their department’s overall targets and commitments.

To be eligible for PBB, the performance of each agency shall be measured using verifiable and credible indicators based on the pillars of the Results-Based Performance Management System (RPMS) that include Major Final Outputs (MFOs) and Performance Targets as specified in the Organizational Performance Indicators Framework.

Other RPMS pillars are good governance conditions based on the performance drivers of RPMS, namely, financial stewardship, process efficiency, and leadership, learning, and growth.

Once the agency acquires eligibility to PBB, the DepEd guideline says, the delivery units and personnel shall be evaluated according to their performance in the achievement of the agency’s performance targets by the task force assigned to oversee its implementation.

The DepEd, according to Abcede, qualified for the top-up PBB for its personnel this year as it has achieved at least 90 percent of last school year’s targets of each MFO, Support to Operations, and General Administrative Support Services as well as of its priority program or project targets.

As for teaching and non-teaching personnel of the schools, there will be no individual ranking at the school level, thus, the performance category of the school shall determine the level of PBB that each employee will receive.

DepEd employees who are recipients of awards such as the literacy swards and national awards from the Civil Service Commission and Metrobank Foundation last year are guaranteed beneficiaries of the Php35,000 bonus, the highest incentive level of PBB.

On the contrary, employees who received a “Below Satisfactory” rating or who are guilty of administrative and/or criminal charges shall automatically be disqualified from receiving the PBB.

The PBB acts as an incentive in addition to the across-the-board bonus of the Productivity Enhancement Incentive and will not replace any given incentive, Abcede said. It aims to promote excellence and accountability among government employees, thus, providing their best public service. (By Danny O. Calleja, PNA)
