Inspector General Checklist

  • Be sure you have problem, not just a peeve.
    (Are the cooks turning out lousy chow or was It just one bad meal).
  • Contact your local IG first.
    (IG’s at higher commands will normally refer the case to the local IG for action).
  • Be honest; don’t provide misleading information.
    (IGs will discover the truth quickly in most cases and there are penalties for knowingly providing false information).
  • Keep in mind that IGs are not policy makers.
    (If a policy is flawed you can submit proposed change on a DA Form 2028).
  • Keep in mind that IGs can only recommend, not order a resolution.
    (Only Commanders can order; the role of the IG is to advise the Commander).
  • Remember IGs can only resolve a case on the basis of fact.
    (Your claim that a supervisor has violated the rules doesn’t make it fact. A claim must be supported with evidence). 
  • Don’t expect instant action on your request. Be patient.
    (Investigations take time, and IGs tend to have heavy workloads).
  • Be prepared to take "No" for the answer.
    (In any case "Yes" or "No", the IG will explain why).

Phone: 772-5492 

To complain without fear of reprisal is the right of any soldier, civilian, or family member seeking IG help.  After all, problem solving is one of IG's primary missions.
