THE DEPARTMENT of Budget and Management (DBM) is reminding various agencies to comply with the Supreme Court (SC) decision on the Makati-Taguig jurisdiction case with regard to budget planning and allocation.

In a circular letter dated Sept. 15, the DBM said that all government entities concerned should take all “appropriate action on budgeting matters and concerns relative to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 General Appropriations Act and the FY 2024 National Expenditure Program (NEP)” to comply with the SC decision.

The SC previously ruled in favor of Taguig City on the jurisdiction of Fort Bonifacio and the Enlisted Men’s Barrios (EMBO) barangays: CEMBO, COMEMBO, PEMBO, East REMBO, West REMBO, South CEMBO, Pitogo, Post Proper Northside, Post Proper Southside, and Rizal. — Luisa Maria Jacinta C. Jocson
