The executive departments of the government of Puerto Rico provide public services to the citizens of Puerto Rico. Currently, there are 15 departments, some with their own sub-agencies and divisions. Each department is run by a Secretary, who is named by the Governor of Puerto Rico and confirmed by the Puerto Rico Senate, except for the Secretary of State who is also confirmed by the House of Representatives. In a parliamentary system, the Departments would be the equivalent of Ministries.
