AT&T‘s (NYSE: T) federal government unit has won a potential $31 million contract to connect 93 Department of Housing and Urban Development facilities to a managed virtual private network.

HUD awarded the contract as part of a network modernization initiative aimed at moving the agency away from a frame relay network toward a managed VPN service for employees and operations nationwide, AT&T said Monday.

Kay Kapoor, president of AT&T’s federal business, said the company aims to help HUD adopt new technologies for communicating internally and for its mission to serve citizens.

The company will also provide HUD a Managed Trusted Internet Protocol Service that will aim to help the agency connect to the public Internet.

AT&T won the contract through the General Services Administration‘s Networx vehicle.
