Currently we are tieing down the version of puppet on our nodes but not the facter version. I'm wandering if facter version should be tied down and if there is any correlation between the puppet version and facter?

Yes, if you lock Puppet at a specific version you need to also lock Facter (and Hiera). I suggest browsing through old versions of the Puppet gems at in order to know the corresponding Facter and Hiera version requirements.
