Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6)

By September 30, 2014, agencies needed to update their public networks to Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) to comply with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance [PDF - 157 KB].

GSA has made available a comprehensive IPv6 SOW Template [DOCX - 910 KB] for agencies to use at no cost to help achieve a smooth and well-planned transition. GSA encourages each agency to access, customize and leverage the IPv6 SOW for its own needs.

Every government agency faces the challenge to identify and update IPv4 assets to IPv6 and GSA’s IPv6 SOW Template [DOCX - 910 KB] is a good place to start or if you’ve already started to use as a reference.

IPv6 provides greatly expanded IP address space with better mobility and security. It can also reduce your network administration and security support costs downstream.

GSA also offers IPv6-compliant equipment, applications, transition support, and integrated solutions. Connections II contractors have expertise to help agencies plan, test, acquire equipment, and implement the IPv6 update.
