    As (Sinse) agreed (has agreed)

    Hello.

    As XXX (name of a company) agreed to take part in this program, we will execute a new document.

    Can I use the Past Simple Tense in the first part of the sentence or there should be the Present Perfect Tense?
    Is it possible to replace "as" with "since" without changing the meaning?

    Thank you.

    The present perfect works better.
