Dear Network Rail,

I would like to request an internal review in to the handling of my request as I do not believe that Network Rail have made a reasonable attempt to answer all elements of my request.

Item 1 in my request was "The cost to date of the CSAMS programme"

Network Rail cannot apply Regulation 12(4)(d) here as it is a request for factual information up to and including the date of my request. The cost to date of the CSAMS programme cannot be in draft, as either Network Rail has an accurate accounting of their programme costs to that date, or they do not. The status of the programme in question is irrelevant to item 1 of my request.

To illustrate my point, if I were requesting costing information of a business as usual operational nature I would not expect Network Rail to decline the request as operations never complete.

Would you also be able to set out the rationale for processing this request under the EIR?

The CSAMS programme itself will not have any direct effect on (as per 2(a) and 2(b)) "air and atmosphere, water, soil, land, landscape and natural sites including wetlands, coastal and marine areas, biological diversity and its components, including genetically modified organisms, and the interaction among these elements", or "factors, such as substances, energy, noise, radiation or waste, including radioactive waste, emissions, discharges and other releases into the environment, affecting or likely to affect the elements of the environment referred to in (a);" and therefore I am not convinced section 2(c) applies. Any changes of this nature will be as a result of unrelated standard changes, not an IT transformation programme.

Yours sincerely,

Ryan Fox
