Only if you're explicitly selling Internet service directly to the
government. If you're selling a service of which Internet is a
component or if you're selling service to a government contractor who
is bundling it with their product, the IPv6 requirement is so much
vapor.

I've worked enough Federal contracts since 2008 to know. Not one of
them, not one, requested IPv6 let alone required it.
