Globus Relief's partnership process consists of five stages: Application, Consultation, Proposal, Fulfillment, and Follow Up. A prospective charity must complete all five stages before ongoing partnership is verified.
STAGE 1: APPLICATION
All prospective charity partners submit an application to Globus Relief prior to obtaining medical resources. This application process ensures both our donors and our humanitarian partners that Globus Relief will match available resources to the most effective humanitarian purposes. Potential charity partners are evaluated with the following criteria:
- Overall intent of the charity
- Ongoing efforts to remain sustainable
- Training and teaching of the community
- Services offered without regard to race, religion or creed
- Level of social impact the charity has within their project

STAGE 2: CONSULTATION
Charity partners meet with a Globus Relief Humanitarian Development Coordinator to discuss the goals and objectives of their charity at large as well as any current relevant initiatives and humanitarian projects. Globus Relief staff assess the needs of the charity and seek to identify current Globus Relief resources and other strategies by which Globus Relief can support the partner's charitable objectives.
STAGE 3: PROPOSAL
After gathering the necessary information, Globus Relief provides the partner with a detailed load proposal, including equipment and supply modules and their associated fair market values, as well as administrative fees and competitive transportation options. This is a cooperative process involving dialogue between the partner and Globus Relief to achieve the goals defined during the consultation stage. Partners are also welcome to browse our on-line inventory through the Globus Relief website. See examples of the quote and transportation options below.
STAGE 4: FULFILLMENT
When an order is confirmed, Globus Relief moves into a process of gathering on-hand resources as well as acquiring additional resources consistent with the partner’s needs. Equipment is reconditioned and certified to meet original manufacturer specifications and is prepared in accordance with in-country criteria. In addition, we offer service maintenance training and education in the field.
Great care is taken to wrap, pack, and load resources. Upon request, we also offer customized packaging and crating options. Globus Relief utilizes volume shipping discounts through a variety of shipping companies to provide the best rates available. We prepare all necessary documents for clearing customs including packing lists, letters of donation and commercial invoices.
STAGE 5: FOLLOW UP
We measure the success of our partnerships by the level of humanitarian impact. In determining the humanitarian impact, Globus Relief utilizes a compilation of evaluation methods to monitor the usage of shipped inventory. These methods include, but are not limited to, Implementation Reports, Yearly Reports and On-Site Reviews. Implementation and Yearly Reports include recipient stories, statistics and photographs. We determine the best method of evaluation based on the type of project and the humanitarian services being provided. Additionally, Globus Relief provides long-term biomedical engineering and support which also serves as a feedback loop and monitoring method.
