Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies
Stephen is the Legal Research Officer to the Institute for Competition and Procurement Studies (ICPS). He has previously supported the work of the 3.7 million Euro Winning in Tendering project, which was aimed at transforming the public tendering experience of Small Indigenous Suppliers (SISs include both SMEs and Third Sector organisations such as Charities) in the INTERREG Ireland/Wales region.

In July 2015 Stephen was appointed as a Public Procurement Law Specialist to TESLA (Transnational Ecosystem Laboratory & Actions), a 3.8 Million Euro INTERREG IVB North West funded project. The aim of TESLA was to support the growth and development of early stage High Potential Start Up (HPSU) companies in Ireland, Wales, Germany, France, Belgium and the Netherlands through a programme of transnational pilot innovation and business support initiatives.
He is also a member of the Project Management team of the Welsh Government sponsored Annual Procurement Week events and the Welsh National Procurement Awards.
