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.
