The audit period was from Jan. 1, 2014, through Dec. 31, 2014. No deficiencies were found.
In its report to the port’s Board of Commissioners, the SAO complimented port management and staff on their responsiveness, organization and hard work.
“Port staff worked quickly and provided audit documentation in an organized fashion,” the report read. “Port audit staff and management are a pleasure to work with.”
The SAO audits ports across Washington each year, examining a wide range of programs and processes. At the Port of Vancouver, the SAO examined marine terminal revenues, procurement (including on-call contracts), payroll, financial condition, accounts payable disbursements, cash receipting, self-insurance, and potential conflicts of interest.
“The auditor’s office took a hard look at our finances and our robust internal controls, and they confirmed that we’re financially healthy, we’re accountable and we’re bringing value to our community,” said port Director of Finance and Accounting Scott Goodrich. “I’m very pleased, and proud of the entire port team for their hard work.”
