Executive Agencies:: The secretaries of fifteen departments make up the U.S. Cabinet (see list below).  It is the role of each department to assist the President in implementing national policy.  These "executive agencies" administer, directly or indirectly, the majority of funding that goes into purchasing goods and services for the Federal government.  The links below provide information about the 15 executive agencies.
