Sheathed wire

I recently put in a sub panel about 12" away from my main panel. I am running circuit wire from the main to the sub panel and was curious if I need to keep the outer sheathing on the bundle of wire between the boxes. The only bare wire would be the ground wire but wasn't sure if I needed to keep the outer rubbery sheath on.

Are you using conduit or cable? Cable needs the outer sheath intact until inside the box.
Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.
