MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) on Wednesday clarified that the release of performance-based incentives (PBI) for 2022 and 2023 for qualified government employees will still proceed.

The DBM issued the clarification after the issuance of Executive Order (EO) No. 61 on Saturday, June 8, which effectively suspended the implementation of Administrative Order (AO) No. 25 and EO No. 80.

AO No. 25 established a unified and integrated Results-Based Performance Management System (RBPMS) across all departments and agencies within the executive branch of government.

On the other hand, EO No. 80 adopted a PBI System, which includes the Productivity Enhancement Incentive (PEI) and the Performance-Based Bonus (PBB).

According to the DBM in a statement, however, EO No. 61 only seeks to review the RBPM and PBI “in order to harmonize, streamline and make the process of releasing personnel incentives more efficient and timely.”

“Under the EO, possible refinements may be made for the more efficient and streamlined release of the 2023 PBB,” said the DBM.

“The budget allocation for the 2024 PEI has already been comprehensively released to agencies and shall also proceed,” the department noted.

“Meanwhile, the FY 2025 PEI shall also be included in the National Expenditure Program,” it added.


The DBM said President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. merely seeks to reform the government performance evaluation process and incentives system towards a more responsive, efficient, agile and competent bureaucracy.
