BBC Radio 4 runs a Registered Supplier List

APPLICATION FORM FOR THE RADIO 4 SUPPLIER LIST

    BBC Radio 4 runs a Registered Supplier List which we regularly review. Existing suppliers and new applicants are assessed against these criteria, which have been agreed with the Office of Fair Trading:

Our editorial and schedule requirements

     Our editorial judgement on quality

     Proven ability to deliver the desired genre

     A degree of innovation

     A company's ability to meet the BBC's regulations, such as on Rights and Health and

    Safety

     Risk appraisal

     Track record in budget management and meeting delivery deadlines

     The appeal of talent

    Please note that only companies with significant experience in production at network level can be considered for registration.

    When you apply to become a supplier you must enter on the form the name and CV of your executive producer, whether this is a member of your company or a freelance person of appropriate editorial experience available to act in this capacity. The executive producer's role is to monitor for editorial quality as well as compliance with BBC Editorial Guidelines. If they have the required expertise, company owners may act as executive producer, but not for programmes which they have themselves produced.

    We require written evidence that all freelance persons listed on your application as producers or executive producers have given consent for their names to be quoted. A forwarded copy of an e-mail from each of them will suffice.

    Within the supplier list we also operate an eligibility list, restricting specialist genres to suppliers with relevant expertise. On the form we ask you to indicate the programme areas for which you wish to offer proposals. It is important that you provide evidence to show your expertise in these areas.

    If a supplier fails to win a commission in 3 successive rounds, Radio 4 reserves the right to drop them from the list.

    Links on this site provide contact details for our current suppliers and their eligibility for specialist genres, should you wish to try offering ideas through one of them while waiting to join the list.

Please return your completed form via e-mail to kathy.caton@bbc.co.uk
