Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need special permission to see the IG?
No. It is your legal right to contact the IG without being restricted. The Whistle Blower Protection Act ensures you can talk to an IG any time you think you have an issue that you cannot resolve any other way.

What should you expect as a result of filing an IG complaint?
An impartial and thorough investigation of your problem or concern with correction of injustices and no reprisal as a result of voicing your concerns.

Do you need to know all the rules to determine if you should talk to the IG?
No! If you're unsure, call and ask the question. If it is something best handled through IG channels we'll tell you or if there is an agency better suited to solve your problem we'll ensure you are put in contact with the right people. In either case, normally the best way to resolve your problems is using the chain of command. Please give them the opportunity to help solve your problem before using the IG system.

Fraud, Waste & Abuse

The primary focus of the Fraud, Waste and Abuse Program is preventing loss of resources. Detection and prosecution serve to deter fraudulent, wasteful or abusive practices, but the key element is prevention.
If you see or suspect instances of Fraud, Waste and Abuse, call our hotline at 987-3006.

Complainants

  • Complainants are among the most important people served by the IG.
  • Complainants are not an interruption of our work; they are the purpose of it.
  • Complainants are part of our mission, not outsiders.
  • Complainants are not cold statistics; they are flesh and blood human beings with feelings and emotions.
  • Complainants are not people with whom to argue or match wits.
  • Complainants are deserving of the most courteous and attentive treatment we can give them.
  • Complainants are people who bring us their problems; it's our job to determine the facts and circumstances bearing on each alleged problem, recommend actions to correct the root cause(s) of problems that are real, and respond to the complainant regarding each allegation.

Inspector General Role

What is the role of the IG?
The primary role of the wing IG is to assist in resolving personalcomplaints based on an alleged wrongdoing or injustice. The base IG is also responsible for the Fraud, Waste, & Abuse program, and Congressional Inquiry responses.

Our customer is the USAF, we help rectify systemic problems that hinder mission success. We investigate reprisal and restriction allegations. We may refer issues to command to allow the chain of command to respond to issues.

  • We are fact finders, not advocates.
  • We are independent and report only to the wing commander or higher.
  • We make recommendations, commanders take action.
  • We educate Airmen, CC's & supervisors on their rights and responsibilities in the AF IG system.
Complaints may involve a wide range of topics including Reprisal, Fraud, Waste, and Abuse, harassment, a variety of situations based on non-compliance with directives, and inequitable application of standards. In handling each of these complaints, the goal is resolution of the complaint by correcting any injustice that may have occurred. Additionally, we strive to fix the problem right the first time based on the root cause and to ensure there is no reprisal as a result of the complaint.
