Port Audit Committee
On June 13, 2006, the Port Commission formally established the Audit Committee. The mission of the Audit Committee is to represent the commission and have review and oversight authority on matters relating to the port’s auditing process and procedures.
Currently serving on the Audit Committee is Commissioner Bill Bryant as Chair, and Commissioner Courtney Gregoire. The Audit Committee has selected Christina Gehrke, Audit Director at the Federal Home Loan Bank, as the citizen representative to ensure public input into audit matters.
The Audit Committee meets as noticed on the Commission Meetings page
to receive reports and presentations on Port of Seattle operations, identified through internal audit functions and other audits done by outside agencies and firms. It reviews recommendations to port departments and Internal Audit staff on areas requiring further work needed to improve accountability and reduce fiscal and other risk.
