When to file an IG complaint

If you believe you are unable to resolve your complaint in supervisory channels and you reasonably believe inappropriate conduct has occurred or a violation of law, policy, procedure, or regulation has been commit-ted, contact your servicing IG. Be prepared to briefly outline the facts and relevant background information related to the issue or complaint in chronological order.

Your complaint should answer:

What violation was committed?

What law, regulation, procedure, or policy was violated?

When did the violation occur?

Who committed the violation?

Fraud, Waste & Abuse (FWA)

All personnel have a duty to promptly re-port FWA or gross mismanagement through command/supervisory channels, IG, AF Audit Agency, AFOSI, Security Forces, or Complaint Hotlines.

Hotlines provide military, defense contractors, and civilians with a confidential means of reporting suspicious activity concerning FWA and employee or management misconduct.

Identity of individual making a FWA disclosure is protected and you may remain anonymous.

Complainant’s Rights

File an IG complaint at any level without going through their supervisory channel

File a complaint with an IG without fear of reprisal

File a complaint anonymously through an IG Hotline, the Defense Hotline, or directly with an IG
