18 18 PQR Cash Bids Tender payments by Channel 3, Channel 5 and Additional Services licensees, Note: The drop in total tender payment in 1999 reflects the renewal of some Channel 3 licences. The increase in PQR in this year reflects the policy decision that more emphasis be given to the PQR component of tender payments. The Broadcasting Acts 1990 and 1996 require that certain kinds of licence are awarded by the ITC after a process of competitive tender. Licences awarded in this way are required to make additional payments to the Treasury (via the ITC). Additional payments are in two parts. The first is a percentage, set by the ITC, of qualifying revenue (PQR). The second part is the cash bid, which on renewal is set by the ITC. This is index-linked and payable annually.
