If you are comfortable doing so, consider giving your chain of command the chance to fix it, first; it's generally faster and they must ultimately resolve many issues anyways.
IGs at higher commands will normally refer the case to the local IG for action.
IGs will discover the truth quickly in most cases and there are penalties for knowingly providing false information.
If a policy is flawed, you can submit a proposed change on DA Form 2028, Recommended Changes to Publications and Blank Forms.
Only commanders can order; the role of the IG is to advise the commander.
Your claim that a supervisor has violated the rules doesn't make it fact. A claim must be supported with evidence.
Investigations take time, and IGs tend to have heavy workloads.
The IG will determine if the issue(s)/allegation(s) is IG appropriate. If not appropriate, then the IG will hand off to the appropriate agency.
Persons who ask the IG for help, make a complaint, give evidence, contact or assist an IG during an inspection or investigation, or otherwise interact with an IG, often have an expectation of confidentiality. This expectation encompasses safeguarding their identity and the nature of their contact with the IG, and protection against reprisal. The IG has a duty to protect confidentiality to the maximum extent possible, particularly when it is specifically requested. While the need for confidentiality and the measures necessary to protect it will vary with the circumstances, the IG always gives this issue priority attention. It is important to remember that, while confidentiality is a priority with Inspectors General, it cannot always be guaranteed. Reference Army Regulation 20-1 or contact your IG for more information.
Individuals requesting assistance should fill out DA Form 1559, Inspector General Action Request, prior to seeing the IG.
Please read ALL of the following instructions to complete the request.
The DA Form 1559 is used to secure sufficient information to make inquiries into matters presented to the IG, to provide a response to the requester(s), and/or take action to correct deficiencies. A person who makes a request for IG assistance is the requester. When the requester presents the IG with allegation(s) or issue(s), the IG will ask the requester to fill out a DA Form 1559. If the requestor contacts the IG telephonically and declines filling in a DA 1559, the IG taking the call can fill out the DA 1559. The information provided on this form provides the IG with the initial base of knowledge to begin an inquiry.
If you choose to submit an issue anonymously, the IG will be unable to notify you of the findings that may directly impact you.
Please download DA Form 1559 and complete it prior to contacting the IG. You can visit in person or mail/email the form to us. Please ensure all information is filled out completely
