In 2005, the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) directed the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to develop standards and testing necessary to support adoption of IPv6 by US Government agencies. The NIST project is known as USGv6. NIST has developed a technical standards profile for US Government acquisition of IPv6 hosts and routers, and a specification for network protection devices. NIST is also actively establishing a testing program in order to test the compliance of products and vendors with the profile.
