The cabinet is comprised of the Vice President and the leaders of fifteen executive departments, which are the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, Labor, State Transportation, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs.

The President's cabinet is made up of the main appointed officers of sectors of the executive branch of the United States federal governments. The cabinet meets on a weekly basis to advise the President on matters relating to the duties of their respective departments.

The cabinet is key to the Presidential chain of succession that establishes the sequence in which representatives succeed to the presidency following the death or resignation of the President. The cabinet was instituted in Article II, section 2 of the United States Constitution to furnish a source of key advisors for the President.

15-the power of the president to establish a cabinet was not a power that the constitution gave the president as outlined in article 2 of the constitution. george washington established the precedent of choosing a cabinet by appointing thomas jefferson as secretary of state, alexander hamilton as secretary of the treasury, henry knox as secretary of war and edmund jennings randolph as attorney general. the most recent cabinet position is that of secretary of homeland security established in 2003
