Can I use Zoom or any other third party applications? Is a SUIT Request required?


The Coast Guard's preferred videoconferencing tool is CVR Teams.  If you have tried using CVR Teams and it does not meet your needs you may request Zoom for Government.  Starting 1 May 2020, all external third party applications (e.g. Zoom) are prohibited for use to conduct Coast Guard business except for telemedicine capabilities (IAW ALCOAST 096/20) or with an approved Special Use Information Technology (SUIT) request for "Zoom for Government".
