[HUDX-223-AD] System Performance Measures (SPMs) by Program

Report Purpose and Summary

System Performance Measures (SPMs) reports are set by the Department of Housing and Urban development. SPMs are not set up to be run by agency or program as they look at the entire system of care as a whole.

SPMs are intended to be run for each HUD CoC. If you are running this report for your agency, it is more to get an idea of how your clients impact the CoC's SPMs, and will NOT show complete data.

If you are interested in seeing information similar to what you would find in the SPMs, try running the  Annual Performance Report. Or ask your System Admin to run the Program Recidivism report for the time frame that would be impacting the SPMs (two years prior to the most recent complete fiscal year).


Make sure you are operating in Clarity under the agency you are running the report for. You can check and change this under your name in the top right corner. 

Step 1: Click on the Launchpad, then click on the Reports icon.

Step 2: In the Report Library, click the down arrow next to the Administrator Reports folder to expand the section.

Step 3: Click the Run button next to [HUDX-223-AD] System Performance Measures.
