We publish an Annual Plan setting out our intentions and future priorities for the year.
The Annual Plan is an essential part of our accountability to licence fee payers and is a key document in the relationship between the BBC and Ofcom, which is our regulator. It provides a framework on which we can be judged as to whether we have delivered our mission and public purposes.
The Annual Plan contains information on three areas:
- the BBC’s creative plans for the year ahead
- the BBC’s three-year strategy and work plan for the year ahead
- each BBC services’ contribution to distinctiveness.
We give our assessment of how well these commitments have been met in our Annual report and accounts.
