    have be/ have been

    Quellen
    Sie lehnen eine Zusammenarbeit ab, da sie nicht offiziel angefragt wurden.

    They decline to agree on a cooperation since they have not be/been ? officially requested.

    Was ist denn richtig be oder been?

    We NEVER say 'have not be' in Englisch.

    Ich würde auch 'requested' hier nicht nutzen. Ich würde sagen

    'They refuse to cooperate since they have not been offically asked.' or

    'They have declined a cooperation because they have not been officially asked.'

    Or something similar but it really depends on the context.

    Request is not wrong but it just sounds strange in this sentence structure, e.g. you could say '..because an official request was not made' or 'a request was not officially made' or even '..because it was not officially requested'.

    It sounds ok when there's an object I think, e.g. 'they were not requested to do something' but 'because they were not requested' on its own sounds like it's missing something.

    Laura, the simple past (was not requested, they were not requested) you suggest is not correct due to the reference to the present. While it may be used in American English it is definitely wrong in UK English. Whenever there is a reference to the present (until now, so far) you definitely have to use the present perfect (have/has not bee asked/requested).
