What is Reportable?
The IC IG is authorized to investigate complaints or information from an employee or contractor of the IC, or any other person, concerning allegations of a violation of law, rule, regulation, waste, fraud, abuse of authority, or a substantial or specific danger to public health and safety in connection with ODNI and/or IC intelligence programs and activities.

Can I Be Punished for Contacting the IC IG?
Reprisal against an employee for making a complaint or disclosing information to the IC IG is prohibited. Those who believe they have been subjected to reprisal due to a complaint or disclosure, should contact the IC IG immediately. Protection from reprisal does not extend to an employee who makes a complaint or discloses information with knowledge that the complaint or information is false or with willful disregard for its truth or falsity.

Who Will Handle this Allegation?
The IC IG reviews and assesses the report and determines if it should be handled by the IC IG or referred to another appropriate office. Issues may be reviewed internally or forwarded to another more appropriate office for resolution.

Can I Be Anonymous?
The IC IG will not disclose the identity of the reporting employee without the consent of the employee, unless the IC IG determines such disclosure is unavoidable in the course of carrying out its responsibilities to resolve the complaint. We encourage you to identify yourself in your report to allow for the IC IG to follow-up. However, you may submit a report anonymously.

To report anonymously, you may call the IC IG at 703-482-1300.
