The foregoing amount shall be used exclusively for this purpose and may not be diverted for other projects or other requirements of BIOTECH and of the University of the Philippines System.

 

The utilization of the amount released under this Letter of Instruction shall be in exception to Letter of Instruction No. 1198 dated February 24, 1982.
