Facilities Accessibility

The Department of Defense Office of the Inspector General (OIG) follows the requirements of the Architectural Barriers Act of 1968 (ABA). The standards issued in the ABA require that facilities designed, built, altered, or leased with federal funds after September 2, 1969 must satisfy applicable accessibility standards. However, owned facilities that have not been altered since 1969 are not subject to ABA standards until certain types of alterations occur.

If you wish to report an accessibility issue related to the physical accessibility of the Pentagon or Mark Center please contact whs.accessibility@mail.mil or by ICE comment card at: https://www.whs.mil/go/ice/accessibility. 

For further information about facility accessibility across DoD, consult with OUSD P&R at OSD.Ability@mail.mil

Alternatively, you may also contact your space manager, or send an email to facilities@dodig.mil with your contact information and a description of the concern.

The United States Access Board is an independent federal agency that promotes equality for people with disabilities through leadership in accessible design and the development of accessibility guidelines and standards. The board enforces ABA requirements through the investigation of complaints from the public, to include OIG employees. Individuals may file a complaint with the Access Board if they believe an OIG facility does not meet the applicable accessibility requirements. Information on the complaint process may be found at:
