TP Group admitted to Defence Services Framework

TP Group (AIM: TPG), the specialist services and engineering group, is pleased to announce that it has been awarded listing on the Multi-Participant Framework Agreement for Technical Support (FATS/5).

The framework provides the Ministry of Defence (MOD), including Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S), Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), and other Government departments, with a route to market to competitively contract technical support through pre-qualified suppliers. The framework covers research-based technical studies as well as project-based technical and engineering support and consultancy.

TP Group has access to a specialised group of both Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Subject Matter Experts, all of whom already deliver into the MOD, providing the most efficient access to industry Suitably Qualified and Experienced Personnel (SQEP) with tailored governance and a minimum of bureaucracy.

Phil Cartmell, Chief Executive Officer of TP Group commented:

"We are very pleased to join the FATS/5 services framework for the MOD. It places us at the front line of advanced services in the UK Defence sector and underpins our strategy to develop and broaden our services and engineering capabilities in this sector."
