The seven agencies are Bangladesh Investment Development Authority (BIDA), Bangladesh Economic Zone Authority (BEZA), Bangladesh Export Processing Zone Authority (BEPZA), National Skills Development Authority (NSDA), Public Private Partnership (PPP) Authority, NGO Affairs Bureau and Ashrayan-2 Project.
The APA is a result-based working plan to reach the desired goal through increasing the efficiency and accountability of the public servant.
In the 2014-15 fiscal year, the Awami League government introduced the APA method in a bid to get better performance from all the ministries and divisions.
In the process, all the subordinate departments, agencies or offices also sign the APAs with their respective ministries, divisions or higher offices.
