Administrative Agencies (AAs) in the exercise of its broad and delegated powers render decisions, issue rules and regulations, make opinions, undertake fact-finding investigations, grant or recall franchises and licenses, release show cause and cease and desist orders, and cite persons in contempt. Depending on their charters or enabling instruments, AAs can exercise all or some of these powers. For each power exercised, there is a corresponding instrument issued.
