Don Bosco Technological Institute is a Catholic tertiary institution owned and administered by the Salesians of Don Bosco. The superior of the Society all over the world is the Rector Major, the successor of St. John Bosco and the father and center of unity of the Salesian family. The Don Bosco schools in Papua New Guinea belong to the North Philippine Province and are under the authority of the Provincial, who takes the place of the Rector Major in this area.
The Provincial, together with his council, has appointed a Delegate, approved by the Rector Major, to coordinate the Salesians and their different works in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. In DBTI, the head of the school is called the Rector, who is appointed by the Provincial with the consent of the Rector Major. (He is vested with final authority and responsibility in all matters affecting Salesians, teachers, staff and students.)
DBTI is affiliated to the Divine Word University in Madang. While maintaining its administrative autonomy, DBTI recognizes the authority of the President and other Academic officers of the DWU in accordance with the provisions of the Memorandum of Agreement.
