Annual Report Submission Portal Accounts

All institutions must set up new annual report submission accounts; you can do so by clicking here. To set up the account(s) you will need to submit the names and email addresses of the employees who need accounts, and for each, indicate what kind of account they need: Administrator or User. Each institution must have one administrator, responsible for submitting the report; however, additional accounts may be created for up to three additional users to enter data:

  • Administrator: Each institution must have one administrator account. This account will have access to the entire Annual Report, and will be responsible for submitting the completed report.

  • User: These accounts allow additional staff members to access and enter data to the form, but not submit the completed annual report.

The form can be completed online, using the link below:

Annual Report Portal Account Creation Form

After the form is submitted, DEAC staff will create the Annual Report Portal accounts and an activation email will be sent to each user. Accounts must be activated within 24 hours of receiving the activation email. Please remember to check your junk/spam folder for the account creation email.
