State Department

The United States Department of State was founded in 1789, making it the first executive department established. It is led by the Secretary of State, who is nominated by the President as a member of the Cabinet. Because of its responsibility for managing international relations, the State Department (and the bureaus of which it is comprised) are important sources of information on U.S. foreign policy.
