The BBC has set out details for a revision of its digital services and solutions.
In a framework document the BBC says its seeking suppliers that would work across children’s and education, news, sport, sounds, home, iPlayer and TV.
Companies would be required to work across at least three of eight digital service catagories; web development, mobile app development, backend development, third party maintenance, emerging technologies, data science and machine learning, design and UX and host and operate.
In its recent annual plan the BBC emphasised its need to capture data to help it offer viewers and listeners a more personalised service. The need to hold its own data has already seen the BBC pull its services from the TuneIn radio platform.
The framework will run for a period of two years from October 20, 2020 and is estimated to be worth between £500,000 and £3 million.
