Clarification on allowed Daily Travel Expenses for travel within 50 kilometer radius

Requested from DENR by Jean Borromeo at 04:20 PM on Feb 08, 2020.
Purpose: Reference
Date of Coverage: 03/15/2019 - 02/08/2020
Tracking no: #DENR-358591153846

Jean 04:20 PM, Feb 08, 2020

I would like to be clarified on the allowed Daily Travel Expenses (DTE) for travels within 50 kilometer radius. Section 6 (b)(ii) of Executive Order No. 77 states that "Meals in an amount not exceeding the thirty per cent (30%) OF THE authorized meal component of the DTE as indicated in Section 5 hereof." This was interpreted by our Chief of the Administrative and Finance Division as 30% of the 30% of P2200 which is only P198, hence, our technical staff who conduct monitoring inspections in theNCR were only allowed P198 DTE. I think the "OF THE" should not be there.
