About contract management expertise centre CM Partners

CM Partners delivers a complete range of service with which organisations can handle the setup, professionalisation and implementation of contract management. An important principle in this is the contract management method developed by CM Partners: CATS CM®

CM Partners was founded in 2005 by Gert-Jan Vlasveld and the late Jan van Beckum. They stood at the cradle of the contract management profession in the 1990s. As a pioneer in the field, CM Partners has grown into a leading consultancy and training agency. To reinforce our mission, Linda Tonkes joined in 2019. As general manager, she continues to work with the partners on the development of contract management as a strategic instrument.


Organisations no longer do everything themselves, but increasingly enter into structural partnerships. We believe that partnerships can always be improved. That’s why we are concerned with the way in which organisations deal with contract and supplier management. This allows us to help them get the most out of their contracts.


By sharing our knowledge and insights regarding contract management, we make organisations and colleagues aware of the possibilities in the field with the unique CATS CM® approach. This allows them to make partnerships with other parties more effective, cheaper and more pleasant.


We develop training courses with which organisations can train their employees to become skilled contract managers or retrain specific knowledge. Additionally, we advise organisations on the setup and implementation of professional contract management.
