Last April 7, DepEd said PBB for some regions will be released very soon.

"The Department was notified by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) that four DepEd regional offices (Region II, IV-A, V, and XII) were already endorsed for processing and eventual releasing of PBB funds for school-based personnel," DepEd said in a statement.

DepEd Undersecretary Annalyn Sevilla added that that DBM is processing the PBB evaluation of other regional offices on a first-come, first-served basis and will be made available for release as soon as possible.

“DepEd is consistently following up for other regions’ PBB and the request for reconsideration for eligibility to grant PBB for non-school-based personnel, as well.” Usec. Sevilla noted.
