Development of Secure Registration and Payment Solution

NetLink developed a secure registration solution for a federal agency, which is an easy-to-use web application allowing agency peer reviewers to register their banking, address, and other required information in order to receive payments from the agency.  Prior to developing this system, the agency relied on an open-to-the-public system for up-to-date payment information for its peer reviewers.  This system made peer reviewers potentially vulnerable to receiving unsolicited commercial email and other solicitations once they have registered.

Thanks to NetLink, the new system is now a fully automated, highly secure web-based system that easily and efficiently allows agency peer reviewers to register to receive compensation.  Registrants can now update banking information and Social Security numbers at anytime, resulting in a reduced number of improper payments.  In addition, Christopher J. Hinkle, Senior Web Architect, NetLink, received the two prestigious awards from the federal agency for this implementation.

Complex Financial Management Application

NetLink Resource Group was asked to complete a complex financial management application for a federal agency, since the client-server-based project had stalled under the guidance of previous development teams.  The system administers critical and highly detailed royalty processes, including royalty income calculations, inventor contact information, royalty distribution percentages and amounts, as well as other royalty process actions performed by this office within the federal agency.  In addition, NetLink developed and integrated the royalty distribution payment processes and IRS Form 1099 generation, as well as added functionality to generate reports and to reconcile payment data.  NetLink is in the process of converting this application from a client-server platform to a web application.

Web-Based Payment System for Conference Reviewers

NetLink Resource Group developed a web-based payment and reporting system for a federal agency needing to track independent contractor compensation when they review conferences sponsored by recipients of agency grants.  The application intuitively allows for the importing of formatted files from an external system for creating conference records.  The application also tracks and reports on special situations including failed payments, as well as handles IRS Form 1099 reporting.  The system is integrated with the agency’s secure payee registration system, a web application designed by NetLink to allow agency peer reviewers to register their banking, address, and other required information in order to receive payments from the agency.
