The national budget complements the government’s development agenda, with the ultimate goal of delivering a better quality of life for the people. With the COVID-19 pandemic, more is expected from the government in terms of vital socioeconomic services.
This booklet is part of CPBRD’s series of publications on the 2022 national government budget. It is intended to help Congress scrutinize the President’s proposal as it provides a comparison of the proposed FY 2022 budget and the current FY 2021 budget. Details are disaggregated by department, agency, and Special Purpose Funds (SPF). The budget levels are broken down by general expense class—i.e., Personal Services (PS), Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE), Capital Outlays (CO), and Financial Expenses (FinEx). Top 25 agencies/SPF with budget increases or cuts are also shown in separate tables.
