Proposed 2012 budget for the Department of National Defense published

The Department of Budget and Management has published the National Expenditure Program for 2012 on its Website. President Aquino presented the same to Congress on the 26th of July.

The proposed budget increased the DND budget by P2,245,101,000. One notable beneficiary of the increase is the Government Arsenal which received a 35% increase in its allocation. The AFP Modernization budget, however, remained at P5 billion — the same amount allocated for the past 5 years.

The following table shows a comparison of key data points.

The NEP presents the budget that Office of the President wants, but merely serves as a guide for congressional deliberation as they craft the General Appropriations Act.
