This study looked at whether the following government services have been allocated where they are really needed most or where there is shortage. It sought to find out explanations for misallocation that can inform possible policy/implementation reform proposals.

G-Watch hopes to provide not only a multi-level analysis of DepEd’s budget allocation and misallocation, but also a template/ methodology for CSOs to check on the responsiveness to need of the allocation of the department, through which CSOs may be able to provide inputs in identifying the needed reforms in resource allocation and possibly obligation of DepEd. This is to ensure allocation according to need as well as to provide third-party information on resource allocation and obligation, avoiding information gaps or incomplete information, which may be taken advantage of by some actors involved in the allocation process.
