AT&T is the incumbent on HITS, which expires in February 2007. The company won the original contract in February 1997.

The new contract was awarded by the Defense Information Technology Contracting Office ? Pacific, part of the Defense Information Systems Agency.

AT&T Government Solutions of Vienna, Va., which supplies telecom and information technology services for the federal government, is a unit of AT&T Inc. of San Antonio.

The parent company ranks No. 31 on Washington Technology's 2006 Top 100 list of the largest federal IT contractors.
