Requests for video and written messages from the DepEd Central Office, field offices, and schools should be received by OSec through email at osec@deped. gov.ph, copy furnished the Public Affairs Service (PAS) at pas.od@deped.gov.ph, at least three (3) weeks prior to the event. Requests sent LATER THAN THE TIME FRAME will NOT BE ENTERTAINED. External requests will be acted upon on a case-to-case basis.

A thorough briefer must be provided. Requests with INCOMPLETE BRIEFERS will NOT BE ENTERTAINED. Briefers must include the following:

For Video Messages

  • brief description of the program;
  • list of officials / VIPs present;
  • list of attendees and/or target audience;
  • dress code (if applicable);
  • contact information of the requesting office (i.e., e-mail address, mobile number);

  • Thorough but concise talking points

Regional and field offices may use the Engagement Briefer Template provided by PAS (Annex A).

For external requests, the requesting party will be asked to fill out the Engagement Briefer Template if their communication lack the sufficient details for endorsement.

  • PAS will review the video requests from our Central, Regional and Field Offices before endorsing to OSec for the Secretary’s approval. The Direct Support Unit (DSU) of OSec will review the external video requests received for further action before endorsing to the Secretary.
  • For written messages, PAS will draft both internal and external requests for the Secretary’s vetting. Should the requesting office already provide the draft written message, PAS will review the submitted message before endorsing for the Secretary’s vetting.

Adherence with the following guidelines will provide PAS and DSU sufficient lead time to review, prepare and endorse the request for the Secretary’s approval and delivery.

For your information and strict compliance.

Thank you.
