Lightfoot has been awarded FATS 4 status by the MOD. Lightfoot has been a supporter of the FATS system (Framework Agreement for Technical Services) since its concept a number of years ago. The FATS contract enables all MOD and Government departments to utilse this contract to procure Technical services via a tasking form with all contract conditions and rates already agreed through a formal tendering process. This enables the services that Lightfoot offers to be contracted very quickly without the requirement to go through the normal lengthy contracting route.
