Ministry of Defence Human Machine Teaming (HMT) Framework - Reopening April 2024

The Human Machine Teaming (HMT) framework focusses on experimentation activity and small-scale procurement of Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS), enabling rapid iterations, across the full stack of potential capabilities.

The HNT framework has a 3-year duration (1 year remaining) with a 12-month option to extend the duration out to March 2026, and has a headroom of £300M. Any competition will be delivered by the Expeditionary Robotics Centre of Expertise (ERCoE) using the Future Capability Innovation (FCI) (previously Future Capability Group) with sufficient framework headroom, to complete iterative spiral development of technological solutions and support/scale those solutions where required.

A  presentation has been included in the Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) which outlines some of the anticipated requirements that may be competed via the framework in the next 12 months. This has been added to facilitate potential providers in evaluating their suitability for the framework. The requirements detailed in the next step presentation are indicative and subject to change.

Framework participation will be subject to successfully completing a PQQ and Invitation to Tender (ITT) process. This will commence with the publication of the PQQ for Human Machine Teaming through the DSP. If your organisation is already a participant within this framework you do not need to complete this process.

This PQQ/ITT process is for new entrants to the framework only and the closing date is 17 May.

The MOD point of contact for the HMT framework is Anjana Nair: [email protected]
