Who May Submit a Complaint to an Inspector General?

Anyone, regardless of status, may make a complaint or request information to any Army Inspector General concerning matters of Army interest. There are no pre-conditions for coming to the Inspector General for Assistance. However, during normal duty hours, military and Department of Defense (DoD) personnel must inform the chain of command that they are leaving their place of duty. They cannot just walk off the job and fail to inform their supervisors where they are going. After duty hours, they may go to the Inspector General without notifying their supervisors.

An Inspector General will encourage the Soldier or civilian employee to discuss complaint or request for information first with the commander, chain of command, or supervisor as outlined in Army Regulation 600-20. If the complainant does not wish to do so, the Inspector General will accept the IGAR. If specific redress procedures are available, the Inspector General will teach and train the requestor on using the appropriate, formally established redress process and refer him or her to that process.

How can I receive assistance with my issue?

If you have an issue, utilize your commanderís open door policy.  AR 600-20, 2-2 states "Commanders will establish an open door policy within their commands. Soldiers are responsible to ensure that the commander is made aware of problems that affect discipline, morale, and mission effectiveness; and an open door policy allows members of the command to present facts, concerns, and problems of a personal or professional nature or other issues that the Soldier has been unable to resolve". 

However you may always request assistance from the IG.    A complaint, allegation, or request for assistance can be presented to an IG in person, by telephone, Fax, regular mail, or via email.  Please see the contact information on the home page.

Matters inappropriate for inspector general action or with limited inspector general involvement.

Redress available through other means. Many situations exist in which either law or regulation provides Soldiers a remedy or means of redress. Soldiers must seek and exhaust the prescribed redress or remedy before an IG can
provide assistance. Once the Soldier has used the available redress procedures, the IG is limited to a review of the redress process to determine if the Soldier was afforded the due process provided by law or regulation. Examples of
situations where specific redress, remedy, or appeals procedures are applicable include, but are not limited to, the following:


(1) Courts-martial actions.
(2) Non-judicial punishment.
(3) Officer evaluation reports.
(4) NCO evaluation reports.
(5) Enlisted reductions.
(6) Type of discharge received.
(7) Pending or requested discharge.
(8) Financial liability investigations of property loss.
(9) Relief for cause.
(10) Adverse information filed in personnel records (except for allegations of reprisal).
(11) Claims.

What happens if I donít tell the whole truth?

All Soldiers have the right to present complaints, grievances, or requests for assistance to the inspector general. This includes evidence of fraud, waste and abuse. Moreover, ďDepartment of the Army personnel are prohibited from taking any disciplinary or adverse action against you for those actions.Ē However, if you lie or knowingly make false accusations to the inspector general, you will be subject to disciplinary action.
