BBC Online is always looking to encourage working relationships with external suppliers and already works with a diversified supplier base across the new media industry delivery innovative services across bbc.co.uk.
Supplier selection is based on overall value for money. Whilst price is important, we will always consider quality, reliability, safety, security, design, timely delivery, maintenance and after sales support before arriving at a decision which is the most economically advantageous to the BBC.
We commission or outsource work from suppliers throughout the editorial and technical delivery process. This means that our suppliers might be working on a very diverse range of activities, from producing content through to software or user experience design.We are currently running a pilot to openly publish opportunities for suppliers on our site. More details can be found on the Supplying the BBC website.
If your digital agency would like to be kept informed of any openly tendered opportunities as well as information on BBC industry events please make sure your contact details are up to date in our e-tendering service.
For editorial TV and multiplatform ideas, you should send in your proposals via the e-commissioning system to the relevant genre Commissioner.
You may want to discuss your proposal first with our contacts across BBC Online.
