U.S. Army Reserve


Read the following ​Statements of Understanding before proceeding further:

1. I have used my commander's open door policy one level up
2. I have attempted to use my local Inspector General
3. I understand the local IG is the expert on local command policy and is the TIG's representative
4. I understand this complaint may be referred to the local IG for Inquiry/Investigation.

Guidance for contacting the USARC Office of the Inspector General

United States Army Reserve personnel needing assistance are encouraged to utilize their chain of command in resolving a problem or issue.  If IG assistance is needed, contact your local IG first.  IG's at higher commands will normally refer your case to the local IG for action.

The IG is unable to action requests with incomplete DA 1559's (go to link at bottom of page). 

In order to have an IG begin work on a matter, the DA 1559 (go to link at bottom of page) must be completed in its entirety with all necessary informa
tion and supporting documents for submission to their local IG. 

Incomplete submission or lack of supporting documentation may slow down the process.  Please 
do not submit any classified documents.

**NOTE:  There is a 3-5 day delay for the USARC IG Office to receive a submitted DA 1559, if sent with a non-DOD issued computer.

If your designated Command IG has been unable to resolve your issue, and you need further assistance at the National Level, please contact the United States Army Reserve Command IG below:

Contact the USARC IG via e-mail at usarmy.usarc.usarc-hq.list.ig@mail.mil  (must include a signed DA 1559).
