A quick definition of government agency:

A government agency is a part of the government that is responsible for carrying out specific tasks or providing certain services to the public. It is like a team of people who work together to make sure that the government is doing what it is supposed to do. Sometimes, if a contractor is working for the government and something goes wrong, they may be able to use the government-agency defense to avoid being held responsible for any harm that was caused.

A more thorough explanation:

A government agency is an organization that is created by the government to carry out specific tasks or provide services to the public. These agencies can be at the federal, state, or local level and are responsible for enforcing laws, regulating industries, and providing public services.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is a government agency that is responsible for protecting human health and the environment. It sets and enforces regulations on air and water quality, hazardous waste, and other environmental issues.

Another example is the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which is a government agency that investigates and enforces federal laws, including terrorism, cybercrime, and organized crime.

These examples illustrate how government agencies are created to serve specific purposes and carry out important tasks on behalf of the government and the public.
