SUBJ//NEW INSTRUCTION FOR CY2017 COR SUBMISSION//
NARR/REF A IS CNO INSTRUCTION ON ANNUAL COMMAND OPERATIONS REPORT//
RMKS/1. Per reference (a), all Navy Echelon II and subordinate commands are
responsible for submitting a Command Operations Report (COR) for their unit
annually. Calendar year 2017 CORs are due 1 March 2018. This NAVADMIN
provides updated information on COR submission guidance and resources to
assist submissions as reflected in the upcoming update to OPNAVINST 5750.12.
2. CORs are one of the most important records each command creates. They
are kept permanently while many other reports are not. CORs are the Navy's
primary source for operational data and this information is used to support
the researchers, Fleet, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, the Joint
Staff, and Congress. This data is needed to understand and improve the
Navy's mission execution. CORs are also a key source of information for
veterans needing documentation of their time in the Navy.
3. The COR shall include information about classified operations during the
reporting period, and be classified appropriately. The COR cannot be vague
and must be descriptive. Include documentation like Post-Deployment Briefs,
After Action Reports and Causality Reports. CORs classified no higher than
the Secret level may be submitted using SIPRNet at:
NHHC_COR(AT)navy.smil.mil. Reports classified higher than Secret are also
accepted. Contact listed SIPRNet email for information about submitting Top
Secret and/or Sensitive Compartmented Information material.
4. Each unit shall submit their own report with only one exception: if a
command has fewer than 10 members, their immediate superior in charge can
submit on their behalf. If a command has 10 or more members - military,
civilian, and/or contractor - they must submit their own report.
5. CORs should be submitted to the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC)
either electronically or using digital media. Paper CORs are strongly
discouraged as they are frequently damaged by the irradiation process.
6. Reference (a), a template with guidance, and examples may be downloaded
from the NHHC's COR website at
-command-operations-report.html. Calendar year 2016 submission template
matching OPNAVINST 5750.12K CH-1 may also be used for this year's
submissions. Questions about the report should be directed to email:
NHHC_COR(AT)navy.mil or NHHC_COR(AT)navy.smil.mil.
7. Point of Contact is the COR Program and may be contacted at comm:
(202) 433-9873 and email: NHHC_COR(AT)navy.mil or NHHC_COR(AT)navy.smil.mil.
