Vancouver USA Continues Clean Audit Streak

By Karen Robes Meeks

For the 10th straight year, the Port of Vancouver USA earned a clean audit from the Washington State Auditor’s Office. No deficiencies were discovered for the audit period of Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2018.

“I’m incredibly proud of the hard work of our Port of Vancouver staff,” said CEO Julianna Marler. “Receiving 10 consecutive clean audits is no small feat. It truly demonstrates the integrity of our team and our continued dedication to accountability and responsible use of public resources.”

The office annually reviews ports across Washington state for various programs and processes.

At the Port of Vancouver, the office looked at “self-insurance; marine terminal revenue; payroll disbursements; procurement, including professional services, public works, and award of contracts on an emergency basis; and accounts payable, including general disbursements, credit cards and employee reimbursements,” according to the port.
