The following defines fraud, waste and abuse:          Fraud is the intentional submission of false information to get money or a benefit. Fraud may be committed against the government, an organization or an individual. Fraud occurs when an individual knows or should know that something is false and provides information or conceals material facts with the intent to deceive to benefit themselves or another person. Examples of fraud include, but are not limited to, the following:          Falsifying information on a Customer application for a consumer.          Soliciting, offering or receiving a kickback, bribe or rebate for program services.          Forging or altering required documentation on a program application.          Deliberately misrepresenting the services offered by SDWP, resulting in unnecessary cost, improper payments or overpayment.          Waste is the extravagant, careless or needless expenditure of government resources or services that result from deficient practices or decisions. An example of waste would be, but is not limited to, throwing away collateral and marketing materials provided by SDWP and intended for the public.          Abuse describes practices that either directly or indirectly result in unnecessary costs. Unlike fraud, the intention to deceive is not required. One example of abuse is providing unfunded program services that are not necessary for enrollment into SDWP’s program (i.e., offering notary services on the side during Customer enrollment).
