Office of the Inspector General 
The Office of The Inspector General (OTIG) makes it convenient to file a complaint. It is recommended you contact your local IG office to initiate a request for assistance, or to file a complaint because that office is in the best position to efficiently resolve them. 

When are IG complaints appropriate? 
Individuals should attempt to resolve fraud, waste, and abuse (FWA) issues and personal complaints at the lowest possible level, using command channels before elevating them to the next higher level or the OTIG. 

Further, complaints must be promptly filed within IG, command, or other grievance channels. IG's may dismiss a complaint if there is no FWA, recognizable wrong or violation of law, regulation, or policy. Also, complaints should be received in a timely manner. 

Where should complaints be filed? 
Complaints may be filed with a supervisor or commander in your chain of command, an IG or other appropriate inspector, or within any established grievance channel. FWA complaints may be reported to the Army Audit Agency (AAA), Army Office of Special Investigations (AOSI), security police, or other proper authority.
