VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Washington State Auditor’s Office (SAO) issued the Port of Vancouver USA a clean bill of financial health for the 14th straight year. The audit period was from January 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022.

The SAO is Washington’s official overseer of how government entities and public entities — like ports — use public funds. It issues annual reports to provide citizens with independent and transparent examinations of how those funds are used. It released the Port of Vancouver USA’s clean audit on May 1.

“The Port of Vancouver is proud to demonstrate that we continue to responsibly steward public resources year after year,” said Julianna Marler, port CEO. “The public entrusts us with these resources to support economic opportunity in our region.  Earning another clean audit in addition to growing a diversified portfolio of cargo, supporting 50-plus industrial businesses and revitalizing Terminal 1 show that we’re focused on carrying out that mission, and doing so with accountability.”

At the Port of Vancouver, the SAO examined 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.
