Key planning considerations for federal agencies include recognizing that an IPv6 transition is already under way because IPv6-capable software and equipment exist in agency networks. Other important agency planning considerations include: developing inventories and assessing risks; creating business cases that identify organizational needs and goals; establishing policies and enforcement mechanisms; determining costs; and identifying timelines and methods for transition. As we have previously reported, planning for system migration and security are often problematic in federal agencies.

However, proactive integration of IPv6 requirements into federal contracts may reduce the costs and complexity of transition by ensuring that federal applications can operate in an IPv6 environment without costly upgrades.
