Event description


The BBC is pleased to announce that it is re-tendering its Digital Services Framework. The BBC Digital Frameworks Briefing is an online event for independent digital suppliers that are seeking to work with the BBC.

This session will tell you everything you need to know about our Digital Services Framework (DSF) which is open for applications from 9 May until 27 June 2016. Current DSF suppliers will also need to reapply if they wish to remain on the framework.

The DSF is suitable for companies that specialise in the design and development of bespoke digital technologies, offering such services as:

  • Digital Design (e.g. Visual, interaction, UX&D, motion, game design)
  • Server Side development
  • Database-related development
  • Client Native development (e.g. Native apps for Windows, iOS, Android)
  • Standards Based Client Web Development
  • Proprietary Based Client Web Development
  • General Development Practices (e.g. Agile, Support, Project Management)

In this briefing we’ll give you a background to the newly formed BBC Design & Engineering division and explain why the digital frameworks were originally set up. We’ll take a look at the feedback we’ve received from BBC buyers and digital suppliers, and then explain how the next iteration of the framework will operate.

We’ll then talk you through how to apply and highlight some key dates for the diary. There are some significant changes from the last version so even if you are on the current framework we’d highly recommend registering for this event.

Register now using the green button at the top of this page and please take a moment to read the FAQs below.
