These explanations or justifications shall be duly signed by the school head/concerned official and appended to the completed school profiles.
  7. DepED’s resource allocation decisions are influenced by the data available in the BEIS. Therefore, Regional Directors, Schools Division Superintendents and District Supervisors are hereby directed to prioritize BEIS data collection and processing over all other Central Office initiated activities, e.g. SReA, HRIS, DEDP, NCBTS and Family Mapping.
