Of this amount, Infrastructure and Other Capital Outlays will increase by 17.5 percent to P296.7 billion from P252.4 billion in 2012. The increases will help boost the momentum currently driving the transport, tourism and agriculture industries.
Meanwhile, Current Operating Expenditures (COE) account for P1.6 trillion of this Budget: an increase of 9.2 percent from the current year’s P1.465 trillion, which accounts for the jump in Personal Services (by 8.0 percent to P641.3 billion) to support the full implementation of the Salary Standardization Law III , among others. Meanwhile, Maintenance and Other Operating Expenditures (MOOE) are up by 17.5 percent to P313.3 billion due to the expansion of social and economic programs.

1 The PSEPF contains allocations for critical development projects that agencies proposed but have not yet been able to flesh out in detail. These have been adopted in the Budget, but segregated under a Special Purpose Fund, in line with the policy against lump sum funds in agency budgets. Once the agencies flesh out these projects, these will be submitted to Congress as ammendments. Some of the projects under this Fund are the Health Facilities Enhancement Fund (DOH) and Public-Private Partnership Support Funds, among others.
