Office of the Inspector General
On a continuing basis, the office of the Inspector General determines the state of economy, efficiency, discipline, morale, esprit de corps and readiness throughout the command as directed by the Commanding General (CG), identify and recommend solutions to performance inhibitors and provide assistance, on an area basis, to Commanders, Soldiers, military family members, DA and DoD Civilian employees, Retirees, and others who seek help with problems related to the U.S. Army, in order to generate disciplined and combat-ready units and maintain the operational effectiveness of the command. 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.
