CORPS ENGINEER REPORTS
Timely accurate, and focused engineer information flow is critical to the mission success of corps, divisions, separate brigades, and cavalry regiments. This appendix provides information concerning standardized engineer reports developed by North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) working groups and provides a sample corps engineer report template. Both pieces of information may be used by corps engineer units to develop specific engineer reporting formats for use in SOPs, training exercises, and combat operations.
Engineer report formats have been developed by NATO engineer working groups. They are in use at the brigade through corps level. These formats may be applicable to all engineer units operating in a corps area. Refer to NATO Standardization Agreement (STANAG) 2096 for specific line-by-line formats. STANAGs are available upon request from the Naval Publications and Forms Center, 700 Robbins Avenue, Building 4, Section D, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19111-5094. Developed STANAG engineer report formats include:
The E201 Engineer Reconnaissance Report is used to order the reconnaissance of mobility, countermobility, survivability and general engineering support tasks. The E201 Engineer Reconnaissance Report is also used to pass key information back to the appropriate headquarters, accompanied by copies of the specific reconnaissance reports as enclosures.
The E202 Engineer Annex is used to transmit all essential information required in the Engineer Annex of a corps, division, separate brigade, or cavalry regiment OPORD.
The E203 Engineer Report (ENGREP) is used to report mobility, countermobility, survivability, and general engineer support task progress and unit combat effectiveness.
The E204 Engineer Data Report (ENGDATAREP) is used to provide detailed information about the number of effective engineer units by type, generic equipment types in terms of availability, and committed and uncommitted major items of material.
The sample template depicted in Figure C-1 provides a list of key information items that may be required by any engineer headquarters in the corps. The template is based on a five-paragraph OPORD format. Not all of the listed information will be required by all units all of the time. The template is designed to be modified based on specific engineer headquarters and mission requirements. Detailed reports in any information specific area may be created by using this template. Specific formats of reports will vary based on the information sharing systems available.
