Please note, the NGA Privacy and Civil Liberties program’s duties extends only to the administration of programs and operations of the NGA.
If your concern involves a program or operation administered by another U.S. Government department or agency, please submit your concern directly to that agency.
Depending on the subject matter, your complaint may be referred to the NGA Office of Inspector General or to another U.S. Government department or agency, such as the Department of Justice.
No action constituting a reprisal, or threat of reprisal, will be made against a Federal employee for making a complaint or for disclosing information to the NGA Privacy and Civil Liberties Division that indicates a possible violation of privacy and/or civil liberties protections in the administration of NGA programs and operations, unless the complaint is made or the information is disclosed with the knowledge that it was false, or made with willful disregard for its truth or falsity.
To report a potential privacy and/or civil liberties violation or file a complaint, please provide a written, detailed description of the incident and surrounding circumstances, and include copies of any unclassified documentation pertaining to the matter.
