The complainant made a request under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIRs) to the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) asking whether there was any connection between radioactive contamination at the Olympic Park and a set of plinths described in a tender request. ODA responded that there was no connection between the management of contamination of their site and the plinths. The Commissioner decided, on the balance of probabilities, that ODA did not hold any undisclosed information within the scope of the request. ODA had an obligation under Regulation 9(1) to provide advice and assistance to the complainant. The extended answers that ODA gave, both in responding to the initial request and subsequently, complied with this obligation.
