DepEd releases payments to schools for ESC and SHS Voucher Programs

As of 30 September 2016, the Department of Education (DepEd) has processed a total of P714.04 million payments for the SHS Voucher Program with actual payments amounting to P239.88 million.

For the ESC and TSS, actual payments amount to P2.86 billion. DepEd has processed payments totaling P4.78 billion that cover 599,048 ESC grantees and P379.15 million for 21,064 TSS teacher-recipients, based on the billing statements submitted.

The release of school payments is on a first come, first served basis. Participating schools can view the status of their school payments by accessing their accounts in the ESC Information Management System (IMS) and/or SHS Voucher Management System (VMS).

Announcement: Creation of Billing Statement for the Remaining Untagged QVRs

As per DepEd Memorandum 142, S. 2016, non-DepEd SHS providers participating in the SHS Voucher Program can now create billing statements of their remaining untagged Qualified Voucher Recipients (QVRs) through a special facility created for this purpose starting September 1, 2016.

The facility is being made available for ESC Grade 10 completers and QVAs who remain untagged as QVRs in the Learner Information System (LIS). QVRs who are public Grade 10 completers will still be automatically tagged and generated by the LIS.

Concerned schools are directed to visit the home page of their VMS account for more details.

Announcement: On the creation of SHS VP billing statements

While waiting for the concern on untagged QVRs to be resolved, we advise Senior High School providers to create billing statements for those students who have already been tagged, if you still have not created a billing statement yet, and submit them to PEAC.

The solution we are working on may be implemented THIS WEEK. Please make sure that the following information are available for when the proposed interim process is already approved:

1. LRN and Date of First Attendance of the untagged students

2. ESC ID or QVR Certificate No. of the untagged students, whichever is applicable

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Rest assured that this will be resolved at the soonest possible time. Thank you.

Advisory on QVR Tagging in the LIS

The facility to tag the remaining untagged Qualified Voucher Recipients in the DepEd LIS is yet to be made fully operational. Once the facility is up, the schools will be able to do the tagging by inputting either the ESC ID or QVR Certificate No. of the concerned students. The error message that is currently seen once the schools input those numbers in the LIS should lead to a reporting mechanism wherein the PEAC will be notified of the error and will be prompted to resolve the issue. This last step is still awaiting completion.

For the meantime, schools can submit billing statements for the existing QVRs. The rest may be billed once the tags appear in the system. Rest assured that PEAC will make the necessary adjustments in the billing deadline if needed.

The DepEd ICTS and PEAC National Secretariat are working hard to expedite the needed improvements in the system. Thank you for bearing with us.
