What Is an IGAR?

  • An IGAR is an Inspector General Action Request, (DA Form 1559) or (AF Form 102).  When completing an IG Action Request Form, it is important that you include as much DETAIL as possible (who, what, when, where, how, etc.).  This enables the IG to conduct a thorough inquiry and saves time in the processing of your case.
  • Army and Air Force IG Action Request forms will disclose to you how the IG will use information you supply, according to the Privacy Act of 1974, and will also request for you to state whether or not you consent to the release of your personal information outside of IG channels (but within DoD official channels) according to FOIA.
  • Anyone who knowingly and intentionally provides false statements on a form DA1559 or AF102 is subject to potential punitive and administrative action (UCMJ Art 107, 18 USC 1001).
