IPv6 Policy

In accordance with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Memorandum 21-07 (M-21-07), dated November 19, 2020, by Fiscal Year (FY) 2023, all new US Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR) information systems must be IPv6-enabled at the time of deployment. It is also the strategic intent of US Commission on Civil Rights to phase out the use of IPv4 for all current systems as soon as practical by meeting the milestones laid out by M-21-07, to include at least 80% of IP-enabled assets on USCCR networks operating in IPv6-only environments by the end of FY 2025.

This statement designates the following team as the lead of USCCR’s IPv6 Integrated Project Team (IPT) to coordinate these actions. The IPT is responsible for developing and overseeing the overall IPv6 transition plan which shall be inclusive of strategies, acquisitions, processes, status, and milestones. Additionally, system owners shall ensure system documentation details plans for transitioning to IPv6 and that these plans align with the Agency’s overall IPv6 Implementation Plan.

USCCR IPV6 Integrated Project Team

Deputy CIO, Technical Lead
Director of Management, Policy Lead
Chief of Administrative Services, Acquisition Lead
Chief of Budget and Finance, Finance Lead

In support of this mandate, designated key stakeholders identified within the IPT must:

  • Provide strategies, processes, status, and milestones for inclusion in the Agency’s overall IPv6 implementation plan;
  • Collaborate to identify opportunities for IPv6 pilots on operational systems and nominate them to the IPT;
  • Oversee implementation of the Agency’s IPv6 implementation plan;
  • Work to ensure that processes for approving new systems for operation, or upgrading existing systems, include a review of the system’s IPv6 readiness to ensure consistency with the Agency’s overall IPv6 Implementation Plan.

For questions, please contact CCR IPV6 Team at ipv6@usccr.gov.
