ARMY - AR 220-1
UNIT STATUS REPORTING
|Publication Date:||16 March 2006|
This regulation applies to the Active Army , the Army National Guard of the United States (ARNGUS), including periods when operating in an Army National Guard (ARNG) capacity, and the United States Army Reserve (USAR). During mobilization and deployments, the proponent may modify or direct MACOMs to supplement provisions contained in this regulation in order to accommodate special unit status reporting requirements.
The unit status report (USR) is a commander's report. It requires objective and subjective measurements of the status of resources and training in the unit and conveys the unit commander's concerns and personal assessments of the unit's overall mission readiness to the chain of command. Reports are used by commanders at higher levels and senior Army leaders to synchronize operational planning and resource management. Accordingly, unit commanders will submit timely, accurate and complete reports that neither mask nor exaggerate readiness deficiencies. This regulation establishes the Army's unit status reporting system, explaining in detail what status information Army units are required to report, how reports are prepared, and how reports are submitted. This regulation is complemented by Army Regulation 220-20, which establishes policy and procedures for the registration of operational Army organizations, to include those operational Army organizations that are required to submit USRs. The information and data contained in USRs are entered into and maintained in the Army Status of Resources and Training System (ASORTS) database which serves as the central registry and authorized database of record for all operational Army organizations and units. The ASORTS database also contains attribute data indicating the unit's present location, current command relationships, mobilization status (if applicable), and information regarding personnel and major equipment items. Where indicated, this regulation must be used in conjunction with AR 220-20. Supporting data and information maintained at official Web sites pursuant to provisions in this regulation will be revised and/or updated in accordance with the processes and procedures established by this regulation and, when applicable, in AR 220-20.
