Inspector General

The 144th Fighter Wing Office of the Inspector General is committed to providing service in support of the 144th Fighter Wing Commander in two main mission sets: complaint resolution, and inspection support.

For complaint resolutions, the role of the IG is to serve as a fair, impartial, and objective fact-finder and a problem solver.

The IG also conducts inspections on behalf of the Wing Commander and the Commander's Inspection Program as part of the Air Force Inspection System. These duties includes monitoring and maintaining readiness for ongoing Unit Effectiveness Inspections.

Complaints Resolution

The primary charge of the IGQ is to sustain a credible Air Force IG system by ensuring a responsive Complaints Resolution Program (CRP) and active Fraud, Waste and Abuse Program (FWA).

Who Do We Assist/Who May File a Complaint?

Airmen of all ranks, civilian employees, retirees, family members and other civilians.

Issues Within the IG's Purview:

Violations of law, regulation, instruction, policy procedures or rules; fraud, waste and abuse of authority; restriction; reprisal.
 
What is Reprisal?
 
Reprisal is taking or threatening to take an unfavorable personnel action or withholding or threatening to withhold a favorable personnel action on a military member for making or preparing to make a protected communication.
 
What is Restriction?

Restriction is preventing or attempting to prevent members of the Armed Forces from making or preparing lawful communications to members of Congress and/or an IG.
 
Complaints Not Appropriate for the IG System:

The IG CRP should not be used for matters normally addressed through other established grievance or appeals channels, unless there is evidence those channels mishandled the matter or process.

Attribution of Complaints:

IG complaints and reports of fraud, waste and abuse may be filed anonymously.

Inspections

What Does IGI Do?

The wing-level IGI is primarily responsible for developing, curating and directing the Wing Commander's Inspection Program.

The IGI serves as the Wing POC for the Air Force Inspection Program, and does continuous evaluation on units within the Wing to ensure that most of the work and preparation is completed before a large inspection.

The IGI also serves as the manager for the Management Internal Control Toolset (MICT), Inspector General Evaluation Management System (IGEMS), and as a gatekeeper for SharePoint.

Who Does IGI Support?

The IGI ultimately supports the Wing Commander, but also supports group, squadron and flight commanders as they prepare for inspections and validate compliance.

To submit a complaint

Complaints may be submitted in-person to the IG, on behalf of another Airman, or anonymously using an Air Force Form 102. Additional information about filing complaints may be found at:

After a complaint has been submitted, the complainant may withdraw the complaint, but an investigation may still occur.
