Frequently Asked Questions:


What is the best method to address my issue?

You should first attempt to resolve problems using the chain of command and other local resources. Seek assistance from the legal

staff, union representative, chaplain, human resource personnel, equal opportunity advisor, your immediate supervisor or commanding

officer. The NAVSEA Inspector General (IG) can be reached by phone, email, fax or mail.


Who may use the hotline?

Anyone can file a hotline complaint.


Is there a time limit to file a complaint?

Generally, you should submit your complaint within 90 days of the date the alleged wrongdoing occurred. However, we will consider

complaints over 90 days old if you can demonstrate you were unable to meet the time requirement due to extraordinary

circumstances or unforeseen delays.


What issues should you report to the hotline?

You should report any issue listed in the list of matters appropriate for the IG to your local IG or installation/command IG point of

contact. Report minor violations to your chain of command. (Note: NAVSEA IG reserves the right to decline to investigate any matter

brought to their attention.)


Can I remain anonymous or request confidentiality?

You may remain anonymous, but we will not be able to contact you for more information. You may request confidentiality, and the IG

will make every effort to prevent disclosure of your identity, but we cannot guarantee confidentiality.


How do you submit a hotline complaint?

We encourage you to submit the allegation(s) in writing by email, fax, letter or using the complaint form. Our experience has shown that

written complaints are more organized, provide more details and are less emotional.


How do you determine the status of your investigation or obtain a copy of the report?

Contact the IG office where you submitted your complaint. While the investigation is ongoing, we can only tell you whether the case is

open. Once the investigation is closed, the IG will send you a letter to inform you that your allegations were substantiated or

unsubstantiated. If you wish to obtain more information about the case, you may submit a request under the Freedom of Information

Act to the IG office that conducted the investigation to obtain a copy of the report.


What information do I need to provide?

If you have determined the issue is appropriate for an IG investigation, gather the information you will need to submit your complaint.

An IG will ask you to provide the following information:

Who: Service member or employee's full name, rank/grade and duty station.

What: Specific wrongdoing and why you believe the activity was misconduct, to include the rule, regulation or law you think they violated.

Where: Location where the wrongdoing occurred.

When: Specific dates and times.

How much: Estimated dollar loss.

Why and how: Describe why and how you believe the individual perpetrated the offense.

What you have done to try to resolved the issue.

What you want the IG to do.

Remember, the more detailed information you provide the better we can assist you.
