Division Commanders and directors of Imperial
Institutions – being the highest representatives of major sections of
The Galactic Empire – are responsible for reporting on behalf of their
respective sections... Fleet Admiral Tiberius Fel wishes to maintain direct
and well–informed working relationships with all High
Command officers: a necessity in commanding the operations of the GE as a whole,
and ensuring all sections have active commanders able to lead their day–to–day
Pursuant to this, a "personal status report" need be submitted on
a regular basis. The criteria is flexible and mandates no formal structure, save
that the general status of a section and the reporting commander need be need be
conveyed to the Supreme Commander no less frequently than weekly.
In addition, it is expected that public status reports get regularly
posted to the Section Reports facility on the Empire Reborn
domain for permanent archival... Their purpose is threefold in relaying the
prominent news of a section to its officers, to the Supreme Commander, and to
the Galactic Empire as a whole.
These have a "recommended interval" of bi–weekly, although this may be
adjusted to no more frequently than weekly, or no less frequently
than tri–weekly, if warranted by an excess or lack of news... As with the
private variety, there is no "minimum size" report length is dictated by
the amount of news available. However, several important notes apply...
- Should, where applicable, contain a briefing from the reporting
commander on the section's overall status, including current officer and cadet
- Should, when applicable, highlight any prominent new items of
internal news or progress.
- Should not (insofar as the version posted to the
Empire Reborn) be a massive re–iteration of
general GE news external to the section (although including such information in
e–mailed copies may be beneficial to one's subordinates). The central
reporting facility itself is intended to circulate the section's highlights to
the Empire, not the Empire's highlights to the section.
To a commander's benefit, releasing a public report eliminates the
need for a private status report during that given week.
