One of BSP's Fit for Future strategy is on People and Country with its main objective to provide employment for Brunei's workforce, nurture, develop and support Bruneian talent, develop local business and attract FDI.

Since 2014, BSP has launched two Vendor development programmes, firstly the Energy Business Academy (EBA) was introduced for local startups and small businesses interested to venture into the Oil and Gas industry. The objective of the EBA is for these businesses to learn BSJV processes, standards and requirements in order to be able to participate in BSJV business opportunities.

The Energy Business Academy 2.0 (EBA2.0) was launched in 2020 to further develop local SMEs competencies and capabilities to compete effectively and sustainably in the Core quadrant through a tailored vendor development and coaching programme.
