Office of the 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.
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".
