No more cash for the BBC website


by David Allen

The way that BBC manages their website bbc.co.uk has come under the microscope of the BBC Trust, who have said that there will be no more cash available to spend on changes until new spending controls have been put place to manage the websites finances.

There will now be a different way of running the way that the website spends money with a new Group Controller put in place who will specifically manage any further investments into services for the website.

This comes after the spending spree that occurred last year, with £110 million being spent. The BBC Trust believe that this money has been misallocated, which is a very serious thing to say when it comes to public money.

There will be a revised plan for the website complied by the BBC for approval by the BBC Trust before any more money is spent on bbc.co.uk, although it is doubtful that there will be a much spending allowed as last year.
