BBC seeks designers to test its products

The BBC is setting up a design research services framework to test and evaluate its products and services.


The BBC is seeking designers to test and evaluate its products and services, as part of a new framework.

The corporation says it is looking for “design research services” as part of a two-year framework worth £3.5 million-£5 million. It is looking to appoint up to eight consultancies to the roster.

The BBC says it is looking for groups “to help perform testing and evaluation of the BBC’s products or services, these will be predominantly, but not exclusively, digital, product or broadcast based”.

It says the products or services under review are likely to be focused around the web, mobile or tablet applications, interactive TV, games and internally facing tools.

The framework is scheduled to run from June 2016 to May 2018.

The deadline for applications or requests to participate is 21 January 2016. For more information and to apply, visit
