Yes looks like. Especially with the mention of DSL/dial up access.
Plus I seem to recall some discussion around the ipv6 mandate having
some language specifying they had to support it transit wise, but not
necessarily be on v6 addresses. 
Anyone from .gov with ATT connectivity care to comment (both on the
nature of the native/tunneled v6 offering and the actual requirements of
meeting the mandate)
 Language from

core or it is operating in a pure
IPv6 mode, i.e., IPv6-compliant and configured to carry operational IPv6
