The following may be of assistance. Did you place your 2017 request with the ICO?
There appears less reason to decline your request now as the ‘investigation’ is complete. The time line here may assist you:
http://www.englandhighways.co.uk/area-9-...
It is possible you were the subject of semantics; in 2017 Highways England may claim they were not looking into the matter but that KPMG (it was to be Grant Thornton) were. However, as Mrs Green was my SPoC (single point of contact) for the enquiry, it is apparent considerable information was held – for example, I provided documentation during a meeting and access to many records on-line (password protected).
Additionally, I have made a SAR (subject access request) of HE and been provided information that relates to the enquiry. Those with knowledge of this would be:
• Colin Matthews
• Jim O’Sullivan
• Tim Reardon
• Sharon McCarthy
• Gary Bacon
Therefore, you will need to have clarified why no information as held when you made the first request.
The allegations arose in 2015 when I sent a substantial report to Highways england. Tim Reardon is aware of this and instigated an audit in 01/2016. This did not address the allegations which continued until the meeting 06/2017 and remain to this day.
The enquiry being conclude din past few months, there should be a mass of information available.
