Definition Client - How does the government define their clients?

#1
Hi
How does the government define thier clients? The field inspector who have to conduct inspection, do not like the term client when addressing the parties they inspect. Due to they feel that public is thier client while as the parties they inspect are not thier client. I do agree with them. But at other part of that government organization, these parties are clients due to they are trying to improve service to these parties. I am trying to find different definitions to define the different types of clients a government has to deal with.
Any help would be nice.

From DEFINITIONS. [2 U.S.C. 1602]

(2) CLIENT.—The term “client” means any person or entity that employs or retains another person for financial or other compensation to conduct lobbying activities on behalf of that person or entity. A person or entity whose employees act as lobbyists on its own behalf is both a client and an employer of such employees. In the case of a coalition or association that employs or retains other persons to conduct lobbying activities, the client is the coalition or association and not its individual members.
