SPS: Secure Payment System
Secure Payment System (SPS) is a system application that provides a mechanism by which government agencies can create payment schedules in a secure fashion; with strictly enforced separation of duties. This application also allows personnel at Federal Program Agency (FPA) locations to securely certify and submit schedules to the Fiscal Service over the Internet or via dialup connection. There are two different types of users that are required and responsible for a FPA to submit schedules through SPS. The Data Entry Operator (DEO) creates or imports a schedule and submits the schedule for certification. The Certifying Officer (CO) examines the schedule for content and accuracy. Upon verification, the CO will then certify the schedule, which will result in the schedule being submitted to the Fiscal Service for disbursement.
