The inspector general hotline program identifies and eliminates fraud, waste, and inefficiencies in the operation of the Navy. To be effective, the program requires all personnel to be vigilant against the possibility of illegal or improper acts, and to report them to the chain of command or an inspector general.
The inspector general investigates matters involving:
We encourage you to submit allegation(s) in writing through email, fax or mail. Our experience has shown that written complaints are more organized, provide more details, and are less emotional.
We will evaluate your complaint and request more information, if necessary. If we conduct an investigation, you will be interviewed and will be able to provide additional information and documents at that time.
The fleet inspector general reserves the right to decline to investigate any matter brought to our attention.
You should first attempt to resolve problems using the chain of command and other local resources. If these attempts fail, however, you may follow the 4-Step Hotline Complaint Procedure.
