The field of non-ministerial organizations covers a panoply of activities and many different forms of authority. The main forms of organization are the independent ministerial departments; regulatory boards and commissions, with or without adjudicative powers; the board or commission administering grants that require peer review and decision-making; the board or commission overseeing independent research and analysis; administrative bodies that support the courts; state-owned corporations that are commercial in character; advisory committees and boards; and various parliamentary agents that fulfil a variety of audit functions and report the results to the House of Commons.
