Determine the best method to address your issue. You should first attempt to resolve problems using the chain of command and other local resources such as seeking assistance from the legal staff, union representative, chaplain, human resource office, equal opportunity advisor, supervisor, or Commanding Officer (CO). Refer to the Naval Inspector General (NAVINSGEN) website page, "Determine the Best Method to Address your Complaint
" for additional information.
Prepare to submit your concern. At this point, you've determined that the issue is appropriate for an IG investigation and you will need to gather all of the information needed for your submission. Refer to the Navy Inspector General Hotline website
to learn about the specific type of information you will need to gather.
