What is MOOE?
The Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE) is the allocated funds for public elementary and secondary schools that can be spent on activities and necessities (i.e. electricity and water) that support learning programs and help maintain a safe and healthy environment in schools.
REMINDER: In accordance with RA 9485 (Anti-Red Tape Act of 2007), schools are mandated by law to have a Transparency Board on MOOE posting all school expenditures using the allocated funds.
Computation of School’s MOOE BUDGET PROPOSAL (BP) FY 2019
School’s MOOE = Fixed amount + (Allowable amount x Number of Classrooms) + (Allowable amount x Number of Teachers) + (Allowable amount x Number of Learners) + (Allowable amount x Number of Graduating Learners)
There are two components in the formula, the fixed and variable costs.
The fixed amount for every school would be:
- Elementary School – P50,000
- Junior High School (IUs & Non IUs) – P96,000
- Senior High School *standalone only – P100,000
The variable costs are the following:
|Parameters (Basis)||Elementary School||Junior High School||Senior High School||Senior High School (stand-alone)|
|Every Graduating Learner||P313||P300|
Assume that Basey I Central Elementary School has 250 enrollees, 6 teachers, 5 classrooms and 8 graduating pupils:
Applying the formula, the school’s MOOE would be:
= P50,000 + (P3,750 x 5) + (P5,000 x 6) + (P250 x 250) + (P313 x 8)
= P50,000 + (P18,750) + (P30,000)+ (P62,500)+ (P2,504)
= P164,000 (rounded-off to the nearest thousand)
Basey I Central Elementary School’s MOOE FY 2019 (Proposed) = P164,000.00
There are cases however when the proposals derived from the Boncodin’s formula will be constrained due to the department’s budget ceiling.
