The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) issued a memorandum signed by CHED Chair Patricia Licuanan, endorsing its support in the information, education and communication campaign for Ambisyon Natin 2040 and the Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022.
In the memorandum addressed to all CHED central and regional directors, presidents/heads of public and private higher education institutions (HEIs), participation in the campaign of officials, employees and students from private HEIs shall be voluntary.
Officials and employees of State and Local Universities and Colleges, on the other hand, should first seek approval from the president or head of their respective institutions. They should also observe proper use of government funds in accordance with the Department of Budget and Management National Budget Circular 486 and Administrative Order 103.
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte signed Executive Order No. 5 in October 2016, making the country’s long-term vision or Ambisyon Natin 2040, as the official guidepost for the country’s development planning, and the PDP, as the foundation for this long-term vision.
