Abstract:

The main objective of this paper is to demonstrate that a more comprehensive model for Inspector General inspections should be developed to insure complete coverage of Army issues. In order to accomplish this objective, the paper will address several points. The first point demonstrated that the evolution to the current inspection process was influenced by external forces, which have defined the nature of the inspection process in the Armed Forces. Additionally, the paper will compare the general inspection model found in Department of the Army publications with the methodology employed by lower level inspectors general, specifically at the divisional installation. Finally, the paper will develop an alternative model for the inspection process. It is recommended that the Department of the Army Inspector General change the guidance in Army Regulation 20-1 Inspector General Activities and Procedures to reflect a mandatory compliance inspection of companies and battalions. This guidance should specify those areas deemed essential to the efficient function of the Army and should be standardized.
