The Office of Secret Actions (OSA) is a joint American and British clandestine government agency headquartered in London, England. It is dedicated to dealing with top secret missions and operations for Allied forces. B.J. Blazkowicz is a member of the OSA, and their most prestigious agent.
The Office of Secret Actions is a joint venture between Britain and America, created to pursue clandestine operations behind enemy lines. Information flows in from their agents in the field, and contacts within the resistance movements of German-occupied Europe. The OSA chases down these threads of intelligence, trying to figure out what the Nazis are planning next. Now reports are coming in that don't make sense. It appears that Heinrich Himmler has set something in motion. Always a believer in the occult, Himmler's SS Paranormal Division seems unusually active. The OSA send in their best men to find out exactly what is going on.

In the December of 1948, the entire government agency is wiped out after the Nazi victory in World War II, followed by the surrender of U.S. during the events of Wolfenstein: The New Order. The surviving members of the organization who failed to go into hiding are subsequently murdered by the SS in concentration camps in accordance with the Kommandobefehl (Commando Order)
The OSA appears in Wolfenstein RPG and retconned into the backstory for Wolfenstein 3D Classic on IOS (which includes both Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny). The events of Wolfenstein 3D and Spear of Destiny and their connection to the OSA are mentioned in the Wolfenstein Graphic Novels and in Wolfenstein (2009) itself (in particular the events of Spear of Destiny).
In Wolfenstein: The New Order, the OSA is mentioned in the prologue mission. Its only appearance is the radio transmission between them and Condor 1. It is unknown who Fergus was talking to.
- The OSA is based on the real-life Office of Strategic Services (OSS) formed during World War Two, modeled after the British Special Operations Executive (SOE). The OSS would later evolve into the present day CIA, and its primary functions carried on by the Special Activities Division.
- The interior of OSA Headquarters is slightly different from RtCW version to Wolfenstein version.
