Commander, Naval Surface Forces Pacific,
Office of the Inspector General
Our mission is to inspect, investigate, or inquire into matters of fraud, waste, and mismanagement important to the Department of the Navy.
Our vision is to be viewed as “the conscience of the Navy” – making a difference, adding value at ALL levels through proactive assistance, advice, and advocacy.
Our guiding principle is to support the Department of the Navy in maintaining the highest level of integrity and public confidence.
Your command should be your first point of contact if you are considering filing a complaint. You will save time by submitting your complaint to the lowest level in the chain of command.
If you are unable to resolve your issue using your chain of command, you may consider contacting your local IG. The IG will review your complaint to determine whether or not the issue is a matter for the IG. The IG will acknowledge receipt of your complaint and tell you an investigation will be conducted or explain why your issue is not appropriate for investigation.
If you submit your complaint to DoD IG or the Naval Inspector General, your complaint is forwarded to the local IG for investigation. You will save a great deal of time by submitting your complaint directly to the CNSF/CNAF IG.
Before filling a complaint with a Navy Inspector, there is a 4-Step Hotline complaint procedure
to follow in order to determine if you should file a complaint.
