SPS: Secure Payment System
Secure Payment System (SPS) is an application that provides a mechanism by which government agencies can create payment schedules in a secure fashion, and with a strictly enforced separation of duties. This application allows personnel at Federal Program Agency (FPA) locations to submit schedules to FMS over a browser/web interface. Two different user-types are required and responsible for an FPA to submit schedules to SPS. First, a Data Entry Operator (DEO) creates a schedule and submits the schedule for certification. Next a Certifying Officer (CO) examines the schedule and upon verification, certifies the schedule which results in the schedule being submitted to FMS.
