DepEd Partnerships Database System

What Is the DepEd Partnerships Database System?

The Department of Education Partnerships Database System or DepEd DPDS is an internet-based portal that is designed to unify assistance programs and aid from the private and public sectors. This project is in partnership with DepEd to help public schools across the country. The online system was developed by the EPS with the help of the ICTS to ensure a seamless interface.

Two of the main things that this online system does is collecting and reporting information regarding external donations and partnerships for all public schools. It strategically addresses resource gaps while supporting quality basic education for all grade levels. In fact, DepEd DPDS is also included in the DepEd Partnerships and Advocacy Portal or DPAP.

Who Is DepEd DPDS For?

The DepEd DPDS is designed for private and public sector partners who want to contribute to the delivery of excellent basic education to public schools. Those who want to donate or partner with DepEd for projects or programs that will benefit all learners nationwide can simply register an account on the database system and encode their contribution using the school ID number to ensure seamless data collection and reporting.

The most common benefactors or partners are:

  • Institutions
  • Families
  • Companies
  • Community residents
  • Concerned individuals who want to partake in DepEd’s initiatives and projects to improve and maintain school facilities across the country

Some of the well-known DepEd partners include:

  • AMA Education System
  • Alaska Milk Corp.

These school external partnerships are profiled and reported on the database for easy partner navigation and uploading of PDS or other documents.

What Is the Purpose of DepEd DPDS?

The purpose of the DepEd Partnerships Database System is to:

  • Collect data on any partnership engagements involved in different levels of administration.
  • For reporting and profiling of contributors that want to work on certain projects.

With this improved partnership system, they can manage potential partnerships in a more efficient way for better collaboration. As a result, the partners and the school can effectively reach an agreement through openness and transparency for an informed partnership.

Registered users can browse through the reports and search for certain information such as the:

  • Partner Name
  • Contribution Type
  • Partner Type
  • Quarter
  • Year

Every school has a unique six-digit reference number in the basic education system. As an online system for data collection and reporting, particularly donations from sector partners, DPDS ensures accurate data reporting that is real-time and seamless at the same time.
