Federal Program Agencies: Equipment and Browser Requirements

What browser requirements and equipment are needed to use ASAP.gov?

Below is a list of the minimum computer software required:

Software Supported Unsupported (no longer able to use ASAP.gov)
Operating System Windows 7 and above Windows XP or Vista
Internet Browser Browsers that support TLS 1.2 Internet Explorer version 7 or below

In order to better protect your agency’s financial transactions, ASAP.gov updated its minimum computer and internet browser requirements.

ASAP.gov no longer supports Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1.  As a result, your computers need to use an operating system and internet browser that supports TLS 1.2.

As outlined in the table above, organizations using Windows 7 or above must ensure their internet browsers support TLS 1.2. Computers using either a Windows XP or Vista operating system or an Internet Explorer version prior to version 8 will become unsupported.

Please adjust your browser settings (or communicate this change to your IT staff) and help your recipient organizations adjust their browser settings as outlined below.
