What are the four basic types of agencies in the federal executive branch?

The vast majority of agencies in the executive branch of the federal government are: Cabinet; independent; commissions; and government corporations. There are currently 15 cabinet agencies. Most of these are vast and diverse with numerous divisions and or bureaus. For example OSHA is in the Department of Labor. These are the largest of government agencies, and are directed by a lead official usually referred to as a secretary. The secretaries are appointed by the president with Senate consent, and they often have a number of assistant and deputy secretaries who are also politically appointed by the president. The independent agencies are similar to the cabinet agencies in that the president appoints a lead administrator, and this person reports to the president. Independent agencies are typically much smaller than cabinet agencies and also have more narrowly defined tasks. The CIA, NASA, and EPA are some of the most well know independent agencies. They are called independent agencies because they are not in a cabinet agency. FEMA was once an independent agency but now is in the Department of Homeland Security, a cabinet agency. Government commissions, often referred to as regulatory commissions, differ from these other agencies in that they have multiple leaders. The SEC has five commissioners, of whom one is appointed chair by the president. All of the commissioners are appointed by the president with Senate consent and they serve for fixed terms. Thus, a new president cannot remove them like he can remove the heads of other agencies. These commissions usually regulate business. Examples include the FCC, and FTC. The fourth type of government organization is government corporations. These organizations may have multiple or single leaders. The Tennessee Valley Authority and Amtrak are examples of government corporations. They are usually part public and part private in that they can issue bond debt to raise their own money for capital projects, and also receive appropriations from the federal government. They engage in what are common marketplace functions like communications, transportation, and energy.
