Vet Med & HHS USDA Reporting

This page contains information for College of Veterinary Medicine and Health and Human Sciences faculty to enter data into Digital Measures (DM) for USDA reporting.

Faculty Deadline for Jan.-Dec. 2019: February 4, 2020

Purdue, as a land-grant institution, is federally mandated to report the overall impacts from formula-funded programs such as Hatch, Animal Health, McIntire-Stennis and Smith-Lever. Anyone who received this funding reports annually into REEport at the end of November. REEport contains most, but not all, of the data needed for the federal report. The REEport systems is unfortunately not searchable, so we ask you to provide us information on where to find your REEport report plus outputs, outcomes and outreach for your entire program. This information is due the first week of February every year.

Faculty in the College of Agriculture, College of Health and Human Sciences and College of Veterinary Medicine, with a few rare exceptions*, must report to USDA through Digital Measures. Shortcuts are still available for grant summaries uploaded into REEport (formula/competitive).

* If you think you are an exception, please contact
