READ BEFORE FILING

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) Hotline may not be used for matters normally addressed through other established grievance or appeal channels, unless there is evidence that those channels mishandled the matter or process.  If a policy directive or instruction provides a specific means of redress or appeal of a grievance, complainants must exhaust those procedures before filing a DISA OIG complaint.  Complainants must provide some relevant evidence that the process was mishandled or handled prejudicially before DISA OIG channels will process a complaint of mishandling.  Mere dissatisfaction or disagreement with the outcome or findings of an alternative grievance or appeal process is not a sufficient basis to warrant a DISA OIG investigation.

If you have already filed a complaint with another office/agency concerning your issue and the investigation is ongoing, continue to pursue your complaint with that office until the investigation is completed.  We will not initiate an investigation into a complaint that is already being addressed using another process.

If you have already contacted a member of Congress concerning an issue, please continue to pursue resolution of your complaint with your Congressman as we cannot duplicate the process you have already initiated by contacting a member of Congress.

The following lists identify complaints both appropriate and non-appropriate for the DISA OIG.
