Waste is an extravagant, careless, or needless expenditure of government funds, or the consumption of government property that results from deficient practices, systems, controls or decisions. Abuse is an intentional or improper use of government resources, including misuse or resources such as tools, vehicles or copying machines. (Source Office of the Inspector General).
