An administrative agency is an agency that is established by Congress in order to regulate something that Congress might not have the expertise and knowledge to regulate themselves. When Congress decides they do want to establish an administrative agency, they must go through the enabling legislation process. During this time, they will name the agency, establish its structure, and figure out what the agency is authorized to do.
