Complainant Identity and Release Preference (Choose One)

I am providing the OIG my name and I agree that the VA OIG can disclose my name and other information I provide, if necessary, in order to ensure my issues are addressed. This category is appropriate for complainants seeking personal relief, such as veterans, dependents, and contractors.

I wish to be confidential, meaning I am providing the OIG my name, but I request that the OIG not disclose my name outside the OIG. This category is appropriate for complainants who fear reprisal from the VA or other alleged wrongdoers for contacting the OIG.

I wish to be anonymous, meaning the OIG will not know my name. If I make this selection, the OIG will not be able to contact me, the OIG may not have enough information to pursue my concern, and I may not be able to find out if a case was opened.
