CPM is a provider of technical assistance for public sector organizations. They work on improving administrative capacity at the frontier of the European Union: in its New Members and Candidates, the Western Balkans, the CSI and the other countries of the Neighbourhood Policy. Their services help the public sector there to upgrade its systems and policies, making it easier to promote economic or social development. Better governance is essential to take part and count in this growing Europe.
They are convinced that three minds work better than one; hence they are today as committed as ever to the CPM tradition of taking decisions collectively. The Advisory Board steers CPM’s strategy and has the final say in all management decisions.
While a well-functioning administrative structure is key in every company, it is especially vital when working with the public sector. Over the years, they have developed the structures and procedures to guarantee that their services for their clients can not be tainted by administrative hick-ups.
Their projects are their product. This is why they put such a strong focus on project management. They have not only shown that they know how to optimally manage former high level public servants in the field as experts, but have also built in-house capacities in understanding the methodological and bureaucratic demands of the EU, WB, UNDP and other clients over the years. This management competence guarantees always the highest value for money to the institutions we are serving.
In a business dominated by “body shop” companies with no inhouse knowledge on the subject, CPM works constantly on honouring its founding principle of serving their clients through sharing their own successful public sector experience. For this reason, they support not only proposal writing with an internal content team, but also dedicate backstoppers for each project that review each output.
