Inspections and Assessments.

The MARFORCOM CIG executes the Commanding General’s Inspection Program (CGIP) to assess overall readiness and functional area compliance essential to mission performance.  On a biennial basis, the MARFORCOM CIG assembles inspection teams of subject matter experts to inspect subordinate commands that are commanded by board selected Colonels and Lieutenant Colonels not covered by another CGIP.  As directed, the CIG conducts focused functional inspections to assess the performance of specific programs within the force.  Inspections focus on identifying root causes of problems, particularly those beyond ability of the commander to solve.  The CIG conducts follow-up visits and resolution of outstanding issues beyond the ability of the commander to solve.

Teaching and Training.

The CIG conducts teaching and training on the conduct of inspections.  The CIG and inspectors provide teaching and training on proper methods for achieving programmatic compliance.  The CIG provides information to complainants on proper methods for addressing issues.  The CIG provides training on the conduct of IG related programs.
