Exhibit 10.6

THIS AGREEMENT is made as April 1, 2022, by and between RAYTHEON TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION, a corporation, with an office and place of business at 870 Winter Street, Waltham, MA 02451 (hereinafter referred to as the “Company” or "RTX"), and MICHAEL R. DUMAIS of [ ] (hereinafter referred to as "Consultant").

In consideration of the mutual promises of each party to the other as set forth below, it is hereby mutually agreed as follows:


(a)    Consultant shall provide services for the Company as defined in the Statement of Work attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Services”) during the period commencing on April 1, 2022 and ending on March 31, 2023 (the “Consulting Agreement Term”).

(b)    Consultant agrees to furnish the Company with written reports with respect to such Services if and when reports are requested by the Company.

(c)    It is agreed that the Company is not obligated to use the Supplier's services exclusively or for any stipulated period of time and, subject to Article VI, Section (b), Supplier's services are not exclusive to the Company.

(d)    To facilitate Consultant’s delivery of Services to the Company, the Company agrees to provide the Consultant with access to Company provided administrative support services, to be provided by Dana Morse, an RTX employee. Such support services may vary substantially from week to week based on special projects.


(a)    The parties mutually contemplate that Consultant will provide approximately forty (40) hours of Services per month, and approximately four-hundred-eighty (480) hours of Services over the entire one-year Consulting Agreement Term. In consideration for such Services, Supplier will be paid a fixed monthly retainer fee of $41,667, payable in arrears, plus reasonable expenses. The parties acknowledge that the amount of Services provided in any given month are expected to vary and that any such variances will not impact the amount of monthly compensation payable to the Consultant.

(b)    Consultant agrees to provide a monthly summary of his Services (including total Service hours), together with any request for reimbursement of expenses incurred, to the Office of the CEO, via email (, or to the mailing address set forth in Article V, and agrees that he shall be obligated to submit any final invoice requesting expense reimbursement to the same, within thirty (30) days of the conclusion of the Consulting Agreement Term. The

monthly summary shall fairly and accurately describe in sufficient detail the actual services performed and reasonable expenses incurred.

(c)     For the avoidance of doubt, in the event of an early termination by either Party pursuant to Article III(b) below, Consultant will no longer be expected to provide Services and the Company will no longer be obligated to pay the fixed monthly retainer.    

(d)     If the Company elects to make payment electronically, Consultant shall submit electronic payment requests and the Company shall make payments by electronic wire transfer, in accordance with its procedures. Consultant shall advise in writing the bank and account information to which the Company is to make electronic payments.

(e)    It is understood and acknowledged that this Agreement shall not prevent Consultant from becoming employed by any person or entity (subject to restrictions set forth in the Separation Agreement) and that the Services required by the Company will not unreasonably interfere with obligations the Supplier may have to any employer or with his activities in seeking employment, and any services to be provided pursuant to this Agreement shall be performed at such time or times and at such locations as mutually agreed between the parties.

(f)    Consultant is not expected to render services within any 12 month period that involve a time commitment in excess of 37.5% of the average time expended as an employee of the Company during the 36 months prior to his retirement from the Company, which retirement therefore qualifies as a "separation from service” within the meaning of Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of actual services rendered exceed this limit, the parties agree to cooperate to avoid any violation of Section 409A. Such cooperation could include, for example, deferring the receipt of payments from the Company’s compensation programs that are considered deferred compensation arrangements for purposes of Section 409A.

(g)    Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Agreement, the Company shall be under no obligation to make any payment to Consultant in excess of the total amount of $525,000 for any and all services performed, together with any and all expenses incurred under the terms of this Agreement.


(a)     This Agreement may be extended only by mutual written agreement between the parties. The parties agree that any renewal of the Agreement, or extension of the Consulting Agreement Term, will take into consideration actual Services provided during the initial Consulting Agreement Term, in determining the compensation arrangement for the extension period or renewal of the Agreement.

(b)     Either party may terminate this Agreement by giving the other party fourteen (14) days written notice.


(c)     Upon termination, the Company will pay Consultant for any services performed under the Agreement up to the effective termination date, and the Company will have no further obligations to Consultant.


(a)     Consultant warrants to the Company that the Services will be provided free of any rightful claim of any third person by way of infringement and that the Services will conform to the descriptions and other requirements contained in this Agreement.

(b)     Consultant warrants that all services performed under this Agreement shall be performed in accordance with current, sound and generally accepted industry practices, provided, however, that the Company's sole and exclusive remedy for a breach of this warranty shall be to terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 5 of the Addendum to this Agreement.
