DepEd Guidelines on the Preparation of GAD Plans

DepEd Order No. 63, s. 2012
GAD Plans incorporating PPAs must be issuebased resulting from gender analysis and
research ensuring that different concerns and
issues of BOTH women and men are equally
addressed in the GAD plans and budgets.
The GAD Focal Point members or in the
absence of GFP, GAD central and field
coordinators shall take the lead in the
◦ preparation of GAD plans and budgets
◦ monitoring of the implementation of PPAs
◦ submission of accomplishment reports to SDS, RDs,
copy furnished the Staff Development DivisionHRDS
The sex-disaggregated data in the eBEIS
shall be used as basis for planning,
budgeting and policy formulation
The costing or allocating budget for GAD
plans may be in the form of 1) separate
GAD fund to support approved PPAs;
2) integrated in major programs and
projects or as counterpart funds from the
ODA for ODA-funded projects.
GAD budget is not an additional
budget over and above the agency
budget, IT IS PART of it and that the
5% GAD budget is not readily available
for use. The approved issue-based
programs, projects and activities
arising from research and gender
analysis, determine the annual GAD
budget of the Department.
In determining what can or cannot be
charged to GAD budget, the primary
consideration is the gender issue being
addressed by the PPAs. If the gender issue
and the justifications are clear, the expenses
can then be charged to the DepEd GAD
