DepEd Minimum Specifications for Devices, Internet Services for Distance Learning




The Department of Education (DepEd) has issued minimum specifications for ICT Equipment and Internet Services that teachers and learners in public elementary and secondary schools can use for distance learning in School Year 2020-2021.

Minimum Specifications for ICT Equipment and Internet Services to Be Donated to Schools, Teachers And/Or Learners, Microsoft Licensing, and Donation Matters

The Office of the Undersecretary for Administration, through the Information and Communications Technology (ICTS), recommends the attached minimum specifications for laptops, desktops, tablet PCs, tablets, smartphones and internet services that will be donated to public schools, teachers and/or students. These minimum specifications will facilitate the conduct of distance education under the COVID-19 pandemic and such other emergencies in the future, and will be appropriate to digital contents and software applications that will be installed by DepEd.

There is no need to purchase Microsoft Office as DepEd already has a special Volume Licensing Arrangement that allows the said software to be installed in all devices used in public schools.




Upon request, DepEd can arrange an “Email of Eligibility” for donors from Microsoft that can be provided to device manufacturers to build fresh devices with discounted Windows 10 Operating System.

Moreover, donors or benefactors are encouraged to indicate whether the provision of ICT gadgets are given by way of donation or by commodatum. In the case of donations, it is recommended that such be made through a Deed of Donation, in favor of the Schools Division Office (SDO) or the schools themselves (if these schools are implementing units), for purposes of proper recording and accountability. In the case of commodatum, the same should be made, written agreement, in favor of the Schools Division Office (SDO) or the schools themselves (if these schools are implementing units), also for purposes of proper recording and accountability. However, the benefactor, is not precluded to make donations directly in favor of the teachers and students, in which case, the DepEd is under no obligation to undertake monitoring and control of inventory or render final accounting of the items.




Upon request, DepEd may also provide copies of terms of reference and bidding documents that have been used in previous successful procurements of ICT equipment for ready reference of the donor.

For guidance and reference.
