The Defense Department today announced a contract has been awarded to SI International to support the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) in defining and establishing the procedures for the eventual transition of DOD to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).

The contract, worth almost $3 million over two years, calls for SI to provide consulting services to determine how DOD should go about its IPv6 conversion.

Following the commercial information technology industry's push to the IPv6 standard, former Defense chief information officer John Stenbit signed a policy memorandum last June that outlines DOD's transition to the new protocol by 2008. That year was chosen because most experts estimate that widespread commercial adoption will take place from 2005 to 2007. The transition won't take place for another four years, but Stenbit mandated that all technology purchased by DOD or one of the services must be IPv6 compatible starting last October.
