Office of the Inspector General
The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Inspector General (IG) is the designated agent for receipt and investigation of allegations of fraud, waste and abuse for the chief of naval research. The IG relies on concerned employees and private citizens to report information regarding alleged fraud, waste, abuse and mismanagement at the ONR.
Everyone is encouraged to be vigilant to the possibility of fraud, waste or abuse and related improprieties, and to report such alleged acts to the IG. Remember that perceptions differ; not all allegations of wrong-doing constitute violations of law, rule or regulation. Please visit the Naval Inspector General website for additional information.
The IG is also the designated agent at ONR for receipt of allegations regarding scientific research misconduct associated with ONR funded grants. Allegations of scientific research misconduct include fabrication, falsification or plagiarism in proposing, performing or reviewing research, or in reporting research results.
