The average utilization rate for the given period was 43.32%, which indicates that resources were being used efficiently, but there is still room for improvement to avoid over-dependence on available resources. The utilization rates for different categories are as follows:

1. Regular Program PS (Salaries and other employee benefits): This category had a 21% utilization rate, for the 1st quarter of 2024.

2. Regular Program MOOE (Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses): The utilization rate was 33%, for the 1st quarter of 2024 for maintenance and other operational costs.

3. Locally funded projects MOOE-Current (Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses): This category had a 80% utilization rate and still increasing due to numerous activities of locally funded projects of the PSA.

4. Locally funded projects MOOE Continuing (Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses): This category had a 28% utilization rate wherein Census of Agriculture and Fisheries is the biggest contributor with regards to budget utilization rate in Locally Funded Project – Continuing category.

Overall, the utilization rates for Regular Program of Personnel Services (PS) and Maintenance and Other Operating Expenses (MOOE) are quite low as of Quarter 1, because the remaining unobligated allotments for the said programs will be downloaded to the region and for distribution over the next three (3) quarters of the year.
