The Cabinet includes the heads of the 15 executive departments --- the Secretaries of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs, as well as the Attorney General. Their job is to manage their department and keep the President informed about concerns connected to their department. They also give the president advice when asked for input.
