The BBC released a quarterly breakdown of expense claims and salary details today.
Its chief operating officer, Caroline Thomson, said it had "recognised" it had to change and work harder to convince licence fee payers that their money was spent wisely.
She said: "That is why over the last 15 months we have become both a more transparent organisation and a better value organisation, committed to serious reductions to senior manager numbers and pay.
"We are focusing relentlessly on delivering quality and better value. We are bearing down on costs right across the organisation so as much investment as possible goes into high-quality programmes. Whilst some expenses are necessary to do the job, the evidence shown today shows real and significant progress on that journey - we have cut expenses by a fifth and are reducing our pay bill by a quarter."
