ICIG Features

A Federal agency cannot retaliate against an employee or applicant because that individual exercises his or her rights under any of the Federal antidiscrimination or whistleblower protection laws listed above. If you believe that you are the victim of retaliation for engaging in protected activity, you must follow, as appropriate, the procedures described in the Antidiscrimination Laws and Whistleblower Protection Laws sections or, if applicable, the administrative or negotiated grievance procedures in order to pursue any legal remedy.

The Intelligence Community Inspectors General Forum's mission is to promote and further collaboration, cooperation and coordination among the Inspectors General of the Intelligence Community of the United States. The forum is led by the IC IG and includes CIA, DHS, DIA, DoD, DOE, DOJ, State, Treasury, NGA, NRO, NSA and FBI.


The IC IG forum members meet quarterly to discuss issues of common concern, and to plan how to address them collaboratively. The forum's objectives include:

  • Supporting the IC IGs in the performance of audits, inspections, evaluations and investigations within their respective departments and agencies;
  • Strengthening the collective role and effectiveness of IG's throughout the Intelligence Community and to enhance the value of IGs' activities in support of the National Intelligence Strategy; and
  • Achieving optimal utilization of resources, to increase efficiency and to avoid duplication of effort among the Inspectors General of the Intelligence Community.

What is reportable?

The ICIG is authorized to investigate complaints or information 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 ICIG?
Reprisal against an employee for making a complaint or disclosing information to the ICIG is prohibited. Those who believe they have been subjected to reprisal due to a complaint or disclosure, should contact the ICIG 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 ICIG reviews and assesses each allegation and determines if it should be handled by the ICIG or referred to another appropriate office for resolution.


Can I be anonymous?
Yes, you can report anonymously. However, it would help ICIG's review to have someone to contact for additional information. The ICIG will not disclose the identity of the complainant without their consent, unless the ICIG determines such disclosure is unavoidable in the course of carrying out its responsibilities to resolve the complaint. ICIG encourages you to identify yourself in your report to allow for follow up.

To report anonymously, you may call the ICIG at 855-731-3260 or submit a form online.
