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.

This series of infographics discusses the allowed expenditures using MOOE, the factors affecting the amount of MOOE allocated, the responsibilities of the different offices and public schools, and the process and distribution of the MOOE.

You can also check on your school’s MOOE allocation for FY 2017.
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.
