Requesting Entity: Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST)
Issues Concern: Acquisition of Real Property
What are the appropriate procedures and requirements for the acquisition of lots adjacent to the main campus of MUST?
[T]he acquisition of real property shall be governed by Republic Act (RA) 8974, and not by RA 9184 and its revised Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR). Since the acquisition of real property is not within the ambit of RA 9184 and its IRR, this office would not be in a position to properly advice you on the purchase by MUST of additional lots for the main campus.
