Annual plan

   Our strategic plans for the year ahead

   We publish an Annual Plan setting out our intentions and future priorities for the year.

   The Annual Plan is an essential part of our accountability to licence fee payers and is a key document in the relationship between the BBC and Ofcom, which is our regulator. It provides a framework on which we can be judged as to whether we have delivered our mission and public purposes.

   The Annual Plan contains information on three areas:
     * the BBC’s creative plans for the year ahead
     * the BBC’s three-year strategy and work plan for the year ahead
     * each BBC services’ contribution to distinctiveness.

   We give our assessment of how well these commitments have been met in our Annual report and accounts.
