National Budget Circular 542
 
National Budget Circular 542, issued by the Department of Budget and Management on August 29, 2012, reiterates compliance with Section 93 of the General Appropriations Act of FY2012. Section 93 is the Transparency Seal provision, to wit:
 
dbmseal
  Sec. 93. Transparency Seal. To enhance transparency and enforce accountability,all national  
   government agencies shall maintain a transparency seal on their official websites. The  
   transparency seal shall contain the following information: (i) the agency's mandates and
   functions, names of its officials with their position and designation, and contact information;   
   (ii) annual reports, as required under National Budget Circular Nos.507 and 507-A dated
   January 31, 2007 and June 12, 2007, respectively, for the last three (3) years; (iii) their
respective approved budgets and corresponding tragets immediately upon approval of this Act; (iv) major programs
and projects and projects categorized in accordance with the five key results areas under E.O. No. 43, s. 2011;
(v) the program/projects  beneficiaries as identified in the applicable special provisions; (vi) status of

contracts awarded and the name of contractors/suppliers/consultants. The respective heads of the agencies
shall be responsible for ensuring compliance with this section.
 
A transparency Seal, prominently displayed on the main page of the website of a particular government agency, is a certificate that it has complied with the requirements of Section 93. This Seal links to a page within the agency’s website which contains an index of downloadable items of each of the above-mentioned documents.
 
Symbolism
 
A pearl buried inside a tightly-shut shell is practically worthless. Government information is a pearl, meant to be shared with the public in order to maximize its inherent value. 
 
The Transparency Seal, depicted by a pearl shining out of an open shell, is a symbol of a policy shift towards openness in access to government information. On the one hand, it hopes to inspire Filipinos in the civil service to be more open to citizen engagement; on the other, to invite the Filipino citizenry to exercise their right to participate in governance. This initiative is envisioned as a step in the right direction towards solidifying the position of the Philippines as the Pearl of the Orient – a shining example for democratic virtue in the region.
