Become a supplier

The BBC works with a diverse range of suppliers who help support the BBC's output across tv, radio and online. We have unique and demanding needs that evolve as rapidly as the broadcasting and communication sectors we work in.

To help support our business operations we work with a rich diversity of suppliers. This includes suppliers of all types and sizes at local, national and international locations.

When selecting who we work with we want to be transparent throughout the process and also demonstrate value for money. As an ethical organisation we want our suppliers to reflect our values and help us achieve our corporate social responsibility objectives.

The need to demonstrate value for money is central to our procurement strategy. We work with our suppliers to deliver contracts which are robust, fit for purpose and maximise value for money for the BBC. We also strive to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of our buying and sourcing solutions.

How we evaluate

Supplier selection is based on overall value for money to ensure the most economically advantageous contracts to the BBC and surety of supply. There are a number of other criteria we evaluate including quality, reliability, safety, service and maintenance.

Potential suppliers must demonstrate their financial, commercial and technical capability to meet our contractual requirements. We also look for a clear demonstration of commitment to corporate social responsibility.
