Talk with your cics support as to how the Internal Reader is defined on your system (it will be some file)

In the code, write the JCL for the report job to this file.

Your system might instead have a utility module that you call passing the jcl - if this is the method used on your system, your cics support will know this also.
Hope this helps,
