Summary


Assistance Branch

The Assistance Branch function is the process of receiving, inquiring into, and responding to complaints, requests for information, and requests for help presented or referred to an Inspector General. This process is used to correct problems indirectly. Inspectors General correct problems by bringing the matter to the attention of the command and letting the command do the right thing. This referral occurs at the lowest level of command appropriate to take the corrective action and elevated only when deemed appropriate. This process assists in eliminating conditions detrimental to the morale, efficiency, or reputation of the unit and the Army.

The Assistance function is another opportunity for the Inspector General to teach and train; provide information about Army systems, processes, and procedures; and assess attitudes while assisting, inspecting, and investigating. The Inspector General Teaching and Training function is an integral part of all Inspector General Functions.
