The Agency is an organization in the Just Cause game series.
Two of the three main characters in Just Cause are Americans with goals along the lines of typical American "agencies".
According to promotional information for Just Cause 3, the Agency is "a covert arm of the CIA – simply called The Agency". In which case, it must've been created between 1947 and 1955, as 1955 was when the Vietnam War started and 1947 was the year the CIA was created.
There's some evidence that the Agency may have had some serious budget cuts between the events of the first two games. In San Esperito, the Agency provided its agents with many vehicles, safehouses and weapons - all for free. But in Panau, the Agency forces its agents to buy all their own weapons and vehicles. Even Tom Sheldon seems to have been demoted to a helicopter pilot, a job which was previously done by unknown Agency members, who flew a small fleet of much larger helicopters. Perhaps the U.S. spent too much on San Esperito?
They are back again in Medici, where initially their only job seems to be to maintain good relations with General Sebastiano Di Ravello. Later they begin to support The Rebellion. Di Ravello tapes reveal that the Agency was very useful in assisting Di Ravello in taking over Medici some decades ago.
In the Sky Fortress DLC and Mech Land Assault DLC, Tom Sheldon mentions that The Agency keeps secret repository archives of information about a defunct scientific research firm called the eDEN Corporation which The Agency had been in business with during the 1980s and 1990s. Sheldon relies on these archives multiple times to assist Rico in mapping the eDEN Airship and uncovering more about the mysterious activities on the islands of Insula Lacrima.
At the conclusion of the Bavarium Sea Heist DLC, it is revealed that The Agency is now in possession of a large cache of portable Bavarium shielding technology developed by the late eDEN Corporation. Sheldon was apparently under orders by his superiors to seize that technology at all costs and prevent it from falling into "incapable" hands. Whatever The Agency plans on doing with this technology is unknown.
Other Agency operations that have been mentioned in missions are:
- According to mission info for "Black is black, I want my intel back", "Ten Agency operatives are MIA in San Esperito. They have left their "black box" digital recording devices behind. The Agency wants the intel back." These agents went missing before the events of the game. Strangely these "digital recording devices" are actual aircraft "black boxes", which would be quite inconvenient for secret agents to carry around.
- According to mission info for "Red Eyes", "The Agency has dropped ten units of infrared surveillance equipment over San Esperito City." It's unknown who these were meant for and they were dropped before the events of the game. Strangely the info refers to a "San Esperito City", where as every other source and in-game info calls it Esperito City.
- According to Maria Kane, Tom Sheldon was "personally involved" in a covert operation that set up Papa Panays regime.
- According to missions from Downloadable content for Just Cause 3, the Agency had ties to the eDEN Corporation several decades ago.
- In Just Cause: Types of missions in Just Cause.
- In Just Cause 2: Category: Just Cause 2 Agency missions.
- In Just Cause 3: Several of the missions in JC3 are given by Tom, but Rico works for himself, so Tom is only providing info for a friend.
The main Agency vehicle is a large white RV, the Pocumtuck Nomad. It's present in JC1 and JC2, but can only be driven in JC2. Some Agency vehicles can be obtained from the Heavy drop and Black Market. The Agency also provides several other vehicles during missions.

Known contacts and alliesEdit
In San Esperito:
- Ejértico Revolucionario de Liberación (the Guerrillas).
- Rioja Cartel
- Carmona (later became a traitor and was presumably killed for it).
- Sebastiano Di Ravello - Described by Tom Sheldon as The Agency's best friend. This is likely meant figuratively, based on context. The Agency would want to cozy up with Di Ravello due to his exclusive access to Bavarium, but he would not necessarily be their literal number one ally.
- eDEN Corporation - The Agency was a business partner of theirs "more than 20 years ago". Tom thought they had gone bankrupt years ago.
- The Rebellion - On the sixth mission Conflicting Interests, Sheldon informs Rico with the scanner he can convince The Agency to "give more help to the rebels."
- Oscar Espinosa - He reveals in the end of the storyline that he was about to sell the Project Illapa to the Agency for what Tom estimated to be "trillions".
- The liberation of San Esperito from Salvador Mendoza's regime.

- The rescue of agent Jade Tan.
- The liberation of Panau from Pandak "Baby" Panay's regime and the installation of a U.S. friendly government.
- The destruction of 11 (or 14) Nuclear missiles, which were aimed at Japan, China, Russia and United States of America. The total number of destroyed missiles is uncertain, because of the controversy in the mission Sink the Buccaneer.
- Operations in the Vietnam War.
Usual soldiers don't belong on this list, as they were killed in battle, instead of assassinated.
