REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
The Service Commissions Department (SCD) is inviting suitably qualified consultants/firms to sub-
mit Expressions of Interest for the conduct of a Management Audit of the Department.
As the SCD seeks to transform and modernize its Human Resource Management (HRM)
Architecture, one of its key pre-cursors to Public Service Transformation is capacity building and

four (4) Commissions, namely the Public, Judicial and Legal, Teaching and Police Service
Commissions, to discharge their constitutional responsibilities. Currently, the SCD is faced with
numerous challenges in the operationalization of its functions. In order to overcome these, the SCD
must embark on modernizing its HRM Architecture to meet the demands of a dynamic Public
Sector and the wider society using a client-centric approach in the delivery of its goods and serv-
ices. Therefore, it is against this backdrop that the Management Audit has become essential.

Altidore trains on own again
Jozy Altidore has trained on his own again, an
indication the injured forward isn t likely to start
in the United States second-round World Cup game
against Belgium next week.
Altidore hasn t played since straining his left ham-
string in the opener against Ghana on June 16. He
joined teammates Saturday to applaud equipment
manager Jesse Bignami for his birthday, then broke

Clube training complex with fitness coach Masa
Sakihana as the rest of the Americans warmed up.
In the knockout stage of consecutive World Cups
for the first time, the U.S. plays Belgium on Tuesday

Moses trains as Nigeria refocus
With a row over bonus payments resolved after
presidential intervention, the focus of Nigeria s
World Cup squad was back on football yesterday
as all 22 available players participated in training
ahead of the second-round match against France.
Victor Moses had been the main injury concern
for the Nigerians but the Chelsea winger trained
under bright sunshine in the Brazilian capital. Only
midfielder Michael Babatunde, who fractured his

The possible threat of Nigeria s players striking
over unpaid bonuses was averted late Thursday when
Nigeria President Goodluck Jonathan stepped in and
spoke to coach Stephen Keshi and captain Joseph

Pasta on menu for France
Good morning. Pass the pasta, please.
France s lunchtime kickoff against Nigeria is going
to shake up the players eating habits, and that s not
to everyone s liking.
France played its three Group E games in the late
afternoon, but tomorrow s round of 16 match in
Brasilia kicks off at 1 pm. This means players have
to eat the equivalent of their lunch for breakfast.
"That means eating pasta from 9 o clock in the
morning," France defender Bacary Sagna said.
Munching on spaghetti carbonara that early might
prove an arduous task for some.
Sagna, however, is used to it from his playing days
with Arsenal in England, where lunchtime kickoffs
are fairly common and where most games start at
