How to use "Federal agency" in context?
A federal agency is a government organization or department that is created by the United States Constitution and exists within the executive branch of the federal government. Some federal agencies are located within the legislative branch, while others are within the judicial branch.
A federal agency can be either a principal agency or an administrative agency. Principal agencies are those that have been specifically designated by the Constitution or by Congress as the principal actors in a particular area of federal government activity. For example, the Department of Defense falls within the purview of the legislative branch, while the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation falls within the purview of the executive branch.
