Sandia collaborates with industry, small businesses, universities, other labs, and government agencies.
Sandia values its interactions with federal, state, and local agencies, the private sector, academic institutions, and the local community. Whether purchasing goods and services, working with our partners, or licensing technology, Sandia is committed to cultivating the highest quality relationships. We offer many business opportunities to suppliers, and are dedicated to strengthening our national, state, and local economies. We spend a large portion of our funding in the states where we are located and are committed to acquiring products and services from small and disadvantaged businesses (Director's Letter of Small Business Commitment). As businesses succeed, local economies thrive and economic benefits accrue to the taxpayer.
Sandia also seeks a wide array of mutually beneficial partnership opportunities. Our customers and collaborators include federal, state, and local agencies, private companies, and academic institutions.
We have transferred technology to the commercial sector for more than three decades, and make it possible for partners to access our world-class science, people, and infrastructure.

Sandia is in the process of completing the transition from IPv4 to IPv6, this journey impacts vendors in that our contracts will soon specify the need for hardware and software to be capable of operating in an IPv6-only environment, as opposed to dual-stack, in acquisitions going forward. These requirements must be expressed using the U.S. Government version 6, USGv6, Profile and include the requirement to demonstrate compliance with those requirements through the USGv6 Test Program. Our goals are that at least 20 percent of IP-enabled assets on Federal networks are operating in IPv6-only environments by 2023. 50 percent by 2024, and 80 percent by 2025.
