Ook zal een bon op uCMDB worden aangesloten (ActualDB) waarin informatie handmatig bijgehouden kan worden, inclusief koppeling naar items vanuit andere bronnen.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for your efforts. It appears, though even the client is not too sure, this is some type of form for specifying the input to the database. Strange term to use but there you are!

neutral  philgoddard: I'm not convinced by this - I think it's bon as in a (metaphorical) sheet of paper.
