The Department of Science and Technology (DOST), through the Information and Communications Technology Office (ICTO) and Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI), is issuing this Request for Information (RFI) as part of its preliminary efforts in procuring a complete cloud solution service for all government agencies. 

In pursuit of a Cloud-First Policy, government agencies will migrate public-interfacing online services to the Government Cloud (GovCloud) in order to take full advantage of the benefits of cloud computing. 

The scope of this undertaking is to Design, Build and Operate a Complete Cloud Solution for Philippine Government Agencies. The model that the DOST is considering is for the Department to serve as the single point of contact for the Philippine Government, responsible for consolidating the cloud computing requirements and negotiating with the cloud service provider on behalf of all agencies.
