BBC salaries

The Times features  a list of BBC 100 top salaries today. (The full list is only in the printed version as far as I can see).

Interesting to see the Procurement Director is featured at number 60  in the 'chart'.  Salary of £170,000, total remuneration of £177,000 .  I'm sure others will disagree, but that sounds pretty much in line with the private sector market given the responsibilities of the role - which are considerable, particularly with the size and sensitivity of some of the BBC's outsourcing contracts.  Probably high if considered in a public sector context though.

Not sure whether we should be impressed that procurement at the BBC is valued more highly than the  Head of Newsgathering (no. 66 ) or Controller, English Regions (73);  or worried that it is below the FM&T controller , A&M (no, I have no idea either...) or the Controller, knowledge commissioning, up at £197K.

And to any CPOs of large organisations reading this; where would you feature in your  top 100? Is this the best real measure of how procurement is valued in an organisation?
