BBC to drop single supplier model and invite tech bids 

The BBC is moving away from a single supplier for its in-house technology as Atos’s 10-year, £2bn technology framework deal draws to a close.

The broadcaster will adopt the supply model used by organisations such as the Ministry of Justice and the National Grid when its deal with Atos – formerly Siemens – ends in March 2015.

The tower model does not include special projects so, separately, the BBC has asked external suppliers to help it tackle some of the issues that the in-house DMI scheme failed to address.

Under the title of the ‘End to End’ digital programme, the broadcaster has asked for information to “shape our plan and approach for a pan-BBC digital archive, media asset management and media workflow solution”.
