2. ABOUT GOAL:
GOAL is an international humanitarian agency dedicated to the alleviation of the suffering of the poorest of the poor. It was
founded by its current Chief Executive, John O'Shea in 1977
GOAL's Mission Statement: To work towards ensuring that the poorest of the poor and most vulnerable in our world and
those affected by humanitarian crises have access to the fundamental needs and rights of life, for example, food, water,
shelter, medical attention and literacy. It is non-denominational, non-governmental and non-political.
GOAL has responded to nearly every major natural and man-made disaster in the past 30 years and is currently operational in
9 countries in the developing world. It also implements rehabilitation and long-term development programmes and works
with local partner organizations that have similar objectives. While GOAL’s priority is to bring life-saving assistance to
people affected by emergencies, through the provision of food, healthcare and other basic requirements, it also priorities
programmes which care for street children and people affected by HIV/AIDS.

Tender RFO. Once the Tender Offers are analyzed for all the selection criteria listed within this RFO and perspectives and

specifics of volume, value and number of rental services required, rental schedule, fixed terms of rental rate, payment

and conditions of Rental Framework Contracts.
Therefore, GOAL Haiti is encouraging Vendors to submit their best value and quality offers in light of potentially long terms
established contractual agreement with vendors for rental services of Trucks and Heavy Machinery, thus guaranteeing good
and stable business for lengthy period of time.
