Chairman, Institute for Competition & Procurement Studies, Bangor University, Wales

Professor Dermot Cahill holds the Chair in Commercial Law at Bangor University. A graduate of the College of Europe, Professor Cahill is the Chairman of the Bangor Institute for Competition & Procurement Studies (ICPS). The ICPS specialises in evidence-based research into the behavioural responses of public institutions and their suppliers to public procurement policies, laws and practices. At the ICPS, Professor Cahill’s multinational, interdisciplinary team has conducted several innovative public procurement projects in recent times. Professor Cahill is a member of the Welsh Advisory Committee to the Law Commission of England & Wales.

Professor Cahill’s early work started with TenderWise, focusing on how public bodies can take effective steps to increase small indigenous suppliers (SISs) engagement with public procurement. Professor Cahill’s latest projects include an assessment of the quality of procurement feedback processes; the feasibility of a ‘quick-decision’ Procurement Ombudsman;  and he leads the ?.7m European Union INTERREG-funded “Winning in Tendering” collaboration between the ICPS, Dublin City University and the Irish Institute of Purchasing & Materials Management. 

Winning in Tendering is a major project, examining the impact of the Remedies Directive on purchasers' behaviour; the feasibility of Low Value Procurement; and the development of a Procurer Competency Framework sensitive to SIS and SME vulnerabilities in procurement. Winning in Tendering also examines how to develop a diagnostic toolkit to allow SMEs's self-assess their tender-readiness, and its Tender Review Instrument has provided unique insight to SMEs and Third Sector organisations seeking to identify their tender writing vulnerabilities.  It is anticipated that many of the insights and outputs from the Winning in Tendering project will be readily transferable to other European countries. Welsh SMEs using our research findings since 2010 have also been proven to elevate their annual tender-win rates typically from 1 in 5 tenders, to 2 in 5. Bangor Law research has enabled two large public organisations, to radically alter their approach to tender design, thereby reducing procurer-evaluation hours per tender, while at the same time significantly reducing tender process times (a 66% improvement on the UK Govt standard). The Welsh Government’s Supplier Qualification Information Database tool which makes tender-entry easy for SMEs is a direct implementation of our research findings. Key representative bodies (e.g. Confederation of British Industry) have extensively quoted our research findings to lobby Government to eradicate SME tendering barriers. Our Tender Review Instrument has been adopted by the Canadian Government as a definitive methodology for elevating SME tendering success rates and the Institute has also signed an MOU with the Brazilian Government (through the Federal School of Finance Administration) to transfer procurement law knowledge to Brazil to aid the fight against corruption in public procurement.

Professor Cahill’s most recent major research grant award was ?50,000 for the TESLA project (2012), an international 7 partner collaboration involving partners in Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland, researching design and cross-sector business concepts that can have transnational application for high performance start-ups (HPSU’s) in the European Union. Professor Cahill will collaborate with researchers from the University of Tilburg Law School and the Phillips Eindhoven campus, to use existing principles to develop procurement design-penetrators that will enhance the capability of HPSU’s to access procurement markets.

Professor’s Cahill co-authored the Barriers to Procurement Opportunity Report which has now been adopted as Government policy by the Welsh Government in 2011. Its recommendations are currently being carried forward by the Welsh Government’s Value Wales division.  The finding that contracts over £25,000 should be advertised has, by 2012, resulted in an 81% increase in transparency via increased publication of public tenders on the Sell2Wales website, i.e., significantly increased advertising of tenders by the Welsh public sector since 2009 has restored public market transparency, improving SME access to public contract opportunities.

A major feature of the ICPS annual calendar is Procurement Week, a major 4 day event which Bangor University hosts each year in March. In 2013 it attracted speakers from the European Commission, Russia’s Anti-Monopoly Regulator, Canada’s Procurement Ombudsman, Sweden’s Competition Authority, Danish Procurement Complaints Board, National Procurement Services from Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as a host of leading procurement lawyers and judges, academic speakers from as far away as the USA, South Africa and India, and leading procurement innovators from around the world, including John McClelland CBE, whose reports on Scottish and Welsh procurement have led to considerable changes to government approaches to public procurement.

Regularly consulted by Governments, political parties, public bodies and business organisations on public procurement law and process issues, Professor Cahill is either author or editor of several EU Law books including The Modernisation of European Union Competition Law (Ed., Cambridge University Press, 2004) and European Law (co-author, Oxford University Press, 5th ed., 2011), Professor Cahill specialises in the Laws of the EU Internal Market and his recent published work has focused on the interplay between EU State Aid, Public Procurement and Competition rules (European Business Law Review).  In 2013 he co-authored (with Gwilym Owen, Bangor) the Report into the Future of the Legal Profession in Wales for the Welsh Government.

Professor Cahill's non-party political advice on procurement matters is frequently sought by the major political parties in both the Welsh and UK Parliaments, and has been invited to assist the work of the upcoming UK Parliamentary Enquiry into the slow adoption of e-invoicing. He serves as the External Research Director with the inaugural Government Procurement Research Centre at China University of Political Science and Law, Beijing, a collaboration arising out of Bangor and CUPL’s Confucius Institute cooperation commenced in 2012.
