Aug

Numerate Consultants have again been successful in their bid to participate in the MoD DE&S  Multi-Participant Framework Agreement for Technical Support (FATS). We accepted an invitation to participate in FATS for the second year running under Agreement FATS/2/NUMC.

" FATS/1 had over 180 suppliers as members with expertise in over 288 capability areas. Having first sought MOD internal resources for the task, (e.g. TES in the DE&S), FATS should be used for all technical support tasks, unless covered by the Long Term Partnering Agreement (LTPA). The [MoD] Customer is still responsible for negotiation and placing each task, but FATS makes contracting faster and more efficient through pre-agreed overall terms and conditions, and pre-agreed rates; it also employs a standard tasking form. Each members areas of expertise are listed in a Market Knowledge Matrix (MKM), thereby identifying competition." -MoD Acquisition Management Site (AMS) www.ams.mod.uk.

Numerate Consultants win a small contract to provide Reliability and Maintainability (R&M) expertise to DE&S under tasking FTS1/RMG/5029 via our  agreement FATS/1/116 with the MoD.

Sept

Numerate Consultants completed six years involvement with Sula Systems and MBDA providing support to the successful £370M Block 2 Seawolf Missile Programme. Seawolf is a fully automatic close area defence anti missile system that first entered service with the Royal Navy in 1979. The Block 2 contract, let in 2000, was a full scale mid-life modernisation and re engineering exercise as part of a through life technology insertion programme.
Our contribution started in 2000 producing requirement specifications for models of the new Dart missile and its subsystems. This was followed by involvement in the modelling of missile performance and dynamic safety studies. It included producing study specifications, analysis of results and writing assessment reports. We were particularly pleased to have been involved as the Block 2 programme met its original in service date when the VL missile variant entered service in July 2005. The Block 2 programme at MBDA is winding down now. It was a pleasure working with the Systems Team at Filton and all the other engineers involved with Block 2 at MBDA.

Aug

Numerate Consultants accepts invitation to participate in the Multi-Participant Framework Agreement for Technical Support (FATS) under Agreement FATS/1/116. The benefits of FATS are easier and faster placing of new technical support contracts because of:

  • pre-agreed Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) between Numerate Consultants and MoD;
  • pre agreed rates for various manpower categories;
  • standardised forms.
