U.S. Army Cyber Command - ARMY CYBER

Army Cyber Command Inspector General

The Army Cyber Command Office of The Inspector General (OIG) makes it convenient for anyone to file a complaint. It is recommended you contact your local Inspector General to initiate a request for assistance or to file a complaint.


How to make an IG Complaint

Complete a DA Form 1559 e-mail or bring it to the Inspector General Office. Please include your complete mailing address and daytime telephone number so we may contact you for clarification. In addition, be sure to state the specific action you are requesting and include the following:

  1. The details of the incident to better inform us of the situation.
  2. Who you have contacted to try and resolve the issue (example: name of person in chain-of-command, name of supervisor, etc).
  3. Copies of any documentation pertaining to the complaint.


What types of complaints are not IG appropriate?

The following issues and allegations are ordinarily not appropriate for IG intervention:

  • Criminal allegations
  • Issues that have other means of redress:
    • Courts-martial actions
    • Non-judicial punishment
    • Officer/NCO evaluation reports
    • Enlisted reductions
    • Type of discharge received
    • Pending or requested discharge
    • Financial liability investigations of property loss
    • Adverse information filed in personnel records (except for allegations of reprisal)
    • Claims
  • Non Army related issues
  • Soldier EO complaints
  • Civilian allegations of reprisal
  • DOD civilian employee redress through other channels
  • Hazardous work conditions


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. The expectation encompasses safeguarding their identities and the nature of their contacts 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. However, it is important to remember that while confidentiality is a priority with Inspectors General, it cannot always be guaranteed.

Reference AR 20-1 or contact your IG for more information.
