    Resulting

    "As a first step, the services that are based on Xs contracts with RMAF are to be performed."

    I would like to get rid of the "that are based" part. Would this work?

    As a first step, the services resulting from Xs contracts with RMAF are to be performed.

    Thanks.

    Re: Resulting

    Obligations, etc, could result from a contract, but can a service?

    That's exactly what I was wondering. The answer is probably "no."

    As a first step, the services due to X's contracts with RMAF are to be performed.

    As a first step, the services based on X's contracts with RMAF are to be performed.

    As a first step, X's contracts services with RMAF are to be performed.

    As a first step, the services required by X's contracts with RMAF are to be perfomed.

    Above are some suggestions.

    Re: Resulting

    How about this?

    "The services pursuant to X's contracts with R are to be performed."

    I'm not sure "pursuant to" can be used in this way.

    What about "described in", "specified in" or "set out in"?
