The variable indicators were derived from normative action and Legal frameworks indicators as independent variables against performance of biosocial projects indicators as dependent variable of this scholarly work. The study was premised on biosocial theory for the two independent variables and theory of constraint for dependent variable. Pragmatism and mixed research approach were embraced in this study to examine normative action, legal frameworks and performance of biosocial projects while descriptive and correlational research designs were adopted.
