This study, commissioned by the Trust's Finance & Compliance Committee on behalf of the Trust and undertaken by MTM London, looked at the BBC's processes for the management of sports rights. The Trust recognises that sports broadcasting is central to the delivery of some of its public purposes, but the BBC and the Trust are also under an obligation to ensure that this is carried out in a way that provides value for money to licence fee payers.

Implementation plan

After every value for money study in which recommendations are made, the Trust requires the Executive to produce an implementation plan setting out how they will put the recommendations into practice. The table below was presented to the Trust by the Executive, and was approved by the Trust's Finance & Compliance Committee. It shows the actions the BBC Executive are taking / will be taking in response to MTM London's recommendations.
