Award winning digital agency MadeByPi – www.madebypi.co.uk – has redeveloped and launched the new BBC Commissioning website – www.bbc.co.uk/commissioning, the BBC’s portal for communicating all the latest commissioning opportunities across all platforms, to content suppliers.

Mario Dubois, BBC’s head of Manchester multiplatform said: “The BBC Commissioning site is an integral part of the BBC’s strategy to enable content providers to deliver the best possible content. It brings our TV, radio and online commissioning requirements together for the first time through a single portal. MadeByPi has created a dynamic site that clearly communicates the BBC’s content needs, commissioning processes, policies and procedures, and provides an essential production and delivery toolkit.”

The new website gives suppliers and potential suppliers access to Editorial Guidelines, offers search facilities for every BBC TV and Radio programme, an online e-Commissioning service for all network TV and multiplatform content proposals, as well as a pronunciation advisory service. The new site also houses essential BBC branding guidelines and technical delivery requirements.

Karen Lewis, client services director at MadeByPi said: “This new BBC Commissioning site offers a one-stop shop for all content providers. Its architecture has been designed to enhance the user experience, improve the navigation around the site and offer more streamlined content for users. The content management system provides the BBC with a flexible tool that can be used to regularly update content on this high-volume user site.”
