Textbook Count

Textbook Count is a collaborative program of G-Watch and DepED in partnership with civil society organizations that started in 2003.  It aims to ensure that the right quantity and quality of textbooks are delivered to the right recipients at the right time.

Textbook Count is geared toward eliminating corruption in textbook procurement, systematizing textbook deliveries nationwide, making suppliers more responsive to the clients’ needs, establishing benchmark for DepEd performance and mobilizing citizens for monitoring and inspection to achieve greater transparency.

With the help of citizen group volunteers, Textbook Count was able to safeguard the integrity of the bidding process, ensure good textbook quality, help high school and districts check the textbooks delivered to them, as well as distribute textbooks to elementary schools.
