Given by the DepEd Central Office, DepEd CALABARZON was acknowledged for its contribution and exemplary performance in the encoding of data for the Enhanced Basic Education Information System (EBEIS) and in institutionalizing the culture of research in basic education and facilitating the use of Basic Education Research Fund (BERF).

The first award was credited to the efforts of CALABARZON in enrolling the majority of schools in CALABARZON in EBEIS while the second award was attributed to the region’s initiatives to promote the culture of research in Basic Education through BERF.
