try this

SELECT departments.name, departments.depId, categories.name
        FROM departments LEFT JOIN categories ON departments.depId=categories.depID
        WHERE departments.depID = '#data.depId#'
        GROUP BY departments.name, departments.depID
        ORDER BY departments.name

made a mistake, remove the group by
SELECT departments.name, departments.depId, categories.name
        FROM departments LEFT JOIN categories ON departments.depId=categories.depID
        WHERE departments.depID = '#data.depId#'
        ORDER BY departments.name
