96% of P72.11-B DAP already released, 77.5% disbursed

Abad: New P13.4-B fund to bolster economy and infra development

MANILA, 10 January (DBM) -- The Department of Budget and Management (DBM) today announced that 96 percent or P69.3 billion of the P72.11 billion Disbursement Acceleration Plan (DAP) has successfully been released to agencies and government-owned or -controlled corporations (GOCCs) as of end-December 2011.

Budget and Management Secretary Florencio B. Abad said that of the total amount, P53.8 billion or 77.5 percent was already disbursed by agencies and GOCCs beginning October 12, when the President approved the DAP.

"We released about P8 billion from December 6 to 29 alone to agencies and GOCCs to ramp up spending. The DAP contributed immensely to the government's increased spending in the last months of the year, allowing agencies to quickly implement programs and projects aligned with the Aquino Social Contract to the Filipino People," Abad said.

He also confirmed that President Benigno S. Aquino III has augmented the DAP with an additional P13.4 billion, bringing the total available releases to P85.5 billion. The added funds will help scale up government spending and strengthen the national economy for fiscal year 2012.

The additional fund was sourced from the pooled savings of the 2011 General Appropriations Act (GAA) that corresponded to completed or discontinued projects under certain departments or agencies.

"The amount is targeted to provide new activities which have not been anticipated during the preparation of the budget, as well as to augment additional requirements for on-going priority projects. It will also provide for deficiencies under the Special Purpose Fund, including the Calamity Fund and Contingent Fund, and augment the much-reduced internal revenue allocations for local government units," Abad said.

As of end-December 29, allotment releases for the P13.4-billion additional funding have also amounted to P11.0 billion, with P7.6 billion or 68 percent in actual disbursements.

Meanwhile, of the original P72.11 billion DAP, cash releases by the end of December amounted to P58.0 billion, with actual disbursements of P53.8 billion.
