Submit Research Facility Annual Reports

WANT TO SUBMIT YOUR USDA ANNUAL REPORT ONLINE?​

Last fall, facilities regulated under the Animal Welfare Act had the opportunity to submit their USDA Annual Reports online for the first time. Based on user feedback, USDA has made significant improvements to the system, making this year’s submission process even easier. ​

If you choose to submit your Annual Report online this year, you will need the appropriate USDA login credentials to ensure that access to your organization’s information remains secure.​

WHY SUBMIT ONLINE?​

This year, research facilities that use USDA’s online system to submit their Annual Reports will see the following improvements:​ ​

  1. Easier login and eAuth process​
  2. More convenient entry of animals​
  3. Ability for facility representative to submit on behalf of CEO or IO​
  4. Instant confirmation of receipt via email, including an attached copy of the Annual Report​

In addition to these improvements, the online Annual Reporting system is:

Secure and Private​

  • Secure system access using USDA’s verified credentialing system​
  • Customer data is private – only seen by members of a given institution​

Quick and Convenient​

  • No need to mail in paper forms​
  • No more wet signatures – Electronically sign your Annual Report​
  • Easy attachment upload​

User-Friendly and Intuitive​

  • Guided self-service​
  • Easy to navigate process​
  • Useful, in-line help text​
  • No calculator needed - system automatically performs calculations​

WHO SHOULD GET CREDENTIALED?​

To interact with USDA online, you must be credentialed through USDA's eAuthentication (eAuth) system. eAuth was recently updated to make registration more convenient than ever before.​

We recommend that the person or people in your organization who typically fill out your facility’s Annual Report get eAuth credentials. ​

HOW DO I GET CREDENTIALED?​

If you already have eAuth, you can use your existing credentials.​

If you don't have eAuth, then sign up now by navigating to https://www.eauth.usda.gov/eauth/b/usda/login
