It's a Space Marine problem - there's some fluff somewhere explaining that Imperial Guard regiments fighting alongside the Astartes have their own command structure because the Ultramarines tried having Guardsmen integrated into the Astartes command chain, and the Captains and Chapter Masters woefully misjudged the Guardsmen's fighting ability and used them in the wrong way. They would use Guardsmen as they would use Space Marines, and obviously failed catastrophically.
