JOEL JOSEPH S. MARCIANO, JR., Ph.D. Acting Director DOST- Advanced Science and Technology Institute ASTI Building, U.P. Technology Park Complex, C.P. Garcia Avenue, Diliman, Quezon City 1101
Upon receipt of the LOI, the PREGINET Project Manager will set a meeting with prospective partner to discuss the institution’s requirements.
DOST-ASTI (PREGINET) will submit a proposal (with indicative costs), as well as a network diagram to prospective partner.
If the proposal is agreeable to the prospective partner, an authorized representative signs the Conforme. The signed Conforme will be sent back to DOST-ASTI.
DOST-ASTI then proceeds with the bidding process to determine which telecommunications company will provide the last-mile connection.

Prospective partner will sign the Conforme on the final proposal and again, the same will be sent back to DOST-ASTI.
DOST-ASTI will process the final and signed MOA.

Over the years, the emergence of information and communications technology has greatly affected the lives of people in the world crossing borders among countries and bringing access closer to one another. In the same token, the birth of Microelectronics has resulted to progress in the development of smaller, lighter and more efficient electronic devices.
This development has a striking resemblance to the birth of one of the research and development institutes of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) – the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI). It was in 1987 when President Corazon C. Aquino renamed the then National Science and Technology Authority (NSTA) to Department of Science and Technology (DOST). As an offshoot of such sequential events, the DOST-ASTI was created as a research and development institute of the Department by virtue of Executive Order No. 128.
