11 DEPARTMENT OF BUDGET AND MANAGEMENT T o be at par with international standards in classifying the budget, the Philippines has adopted the Classification of the Functions of Government (COFOG), a system developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Unlike the old sectoral classification featured in the preceding page where expenditures are grouped into five general classifications according to the spending agency, COFOG allows the budget to be split according to function, purpose, and contribution to society of the expenditure item regardless of the implementing agency. This framework helps answer the usual question of “where do my taxes go?” as it illustrates a more accurate presentation of government expenditures. PhP659.3 B Expenditures for basic (pre-primary, primary, secondary) and tertiary education, among others Education 17.5%* PhP491.7 B Expenditures for government programs and projects that protect the welfare of the people, especially the vulnerable groups Social Protection 13.1%* Defense 4.3%* Expenditures for military and civil defense, foreign military aid, research and development (R&D), and defense against cybercrime PhP163.3 B Environmental Protection 0.7%* Expenditures for waste management, pollution abatement, and protection of biodiversity and landscape PhP24.6 B Housing and Community Amenities 0.2%* PhP5.5 B Expenditures for housing and community development, including amenities such as potable water supply

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
