JAGINST  5830.1 l   Postal   violations.   OPNAVINST   5112.6 INVESTIGATIONS   NOT REQUIRING   A   HEARING The   type   of   fact-finding   body   to   be convened  is  determined  by  the  purpose(s)  of the   inquiry,   the   seriousness   of   the   issues involved,   the   time   allotted   for   completion   of the investigation, and the nature and extent of the  powers  required  to  conduct  a  thorough investigation.  This  section  will  concentrate  on the   most   common   administrative   fact-finding body,   the   investigation   not   requiring   a hearing.  Courts  of  inquiry  and  investigations requiring  a  hearing  will  be  discussed  later  in this   chapter.   Keep   in   mind,   however,   that many   of   the   basic   rules   and   principles discussed  in  this  section  also  apply  to  other types   of   investigations.   As   is   the   case   with any  fact-finding  body,  the  primary  function  of an  investigation  not  requiring  a  hearing  is  to gather   information. A   fact-finding   body   not requiring  a  hearing  does  not  have  the  power to  designate  parties  and,  therefore,  does   not have  the  collateral  function  of  providing  a hearing to a party. Any  officer  in  command  may  order  an investigation   not   requiring   a   hearing. For purposes o f    t h e    J A G M A N ,    o f f i c e r    i n command   means   an   officer   authorized   to convene   any   type of   court-martial   or authorized  to  impose  disciplinary  punishment under  Article  15,   Uniform  Code  of  Military Justice  (UCMJ).  This  also  includes  officers  in charge   (OICs). An   officer   in   command   is   responsible   for initiating  investigations  of  incidents  occurring within  his  or  her  command  or  involving  his  or her  personnel.  If  an  officer  in  command  feels that   investigation   of   an   incident   by   the command   is   impractical,   another   command can  be  requested  to  conduct  the  investigation. If   an   incident   requiring   the   convening   of an investigation occurs at a place geographically  distant  from  the  command,  or the  command  deploys  before  an  investigation can   be   completed,   another   command   can   be requested   to   conduct   the   investigation.   This request should be made to the area coordinator  in  whose  geographical  area  of responsibility  the  incident  occurred. A  single  investigation  should  be  conducted into  an  incident  involving  more  than  one command, c o n v e n e d    b y    a n    o f f i c e r    in command  of  any  of  the  activities  involved.  If difficulties   arise   concerning   who   should convene   the   investigation,   the   common superior   of   all   commands   involved   will determine  who  will  convene  it.  If  the  conduct or   performance   of   one   of   the   officers   in command  may  be  subject  to  inquiry  (as  in  the case   of   a   collision   between   ships),   the common   superior   of   all   the   officers   involved will  convene  the  investigation. THE   INVESTIGATORY   BODY An   investigation   not   requiring   a   hearing may  be  composed  of  a  single  investigator  or a  board  consisting  of  two  or  more  members. The   most   common   is   the   one-officer investigation.  The  IO  should  normally  be  a commissioned  officer,  but  may  be  a  warrant officer,  senior  enlisted,  or  a  civilian  employee, when   appropriate. IOs   must   be   those individuals who are best qualified for the duty by   reason   of   age,   education,   training, experience, l e n g t h    o f    s e r v i c e, and temperament. Unless   impractical,   the   IO should  be  senior  to  any  person  whose  conduct or   performance   of   duty   will   be   subject   to inquiry. An  expert  may  participate  as  IO  or for   the   limited   purpose   of   using   his   or   her special   experience. The  report  should  make 9-19
