Before You Report to the IG
  • Be sure you have a problem, not just a peeve. (Are the cooks turning out lousy food or was it just one bad meal?).
  • Give your chain of command a chance to solve the problem. (Many problems must be addressed to the chain of command for resolution anyway).
  • If IG assistance is needed, contact your local IG first. (IGs at higher commands will normally refer the case to the local IG for action).
  • Be honest and 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).
