PSRC receives clean audit for sixth consecutive year

State auditor releases report with no findings

PSRC has received a clean audit result from the Washington State Auditor– the sixth one in a row for the agency.  

Every year the State Auditor reviews PSRC’s compliance with laws, regulations, contracts and other financial matters. In the last 18 years, PSRC has had just one finding.

“We depend on our financial team and board members to ensure that the agency is making efficient use of public resources to fulfill our mission and keep us on the right track financially,” said Josh Brown, PSRC’s Executive Director.

“Special thanks go to Pierce County Executive Bruce Dammeier, Operations Committee Chair, and our Chief Operating Officer Diana Lauderbach and her team for a job well done.”

The audit process examines financial statements and compliance with federal laws and regulations.

The auditor’s report concludes: “In our opinion, the Council complied, in all material respects, with the types of compliance requirements referred to above that could have a direct and material effect on each of its major federal programs for the year ended June 30, 2017.”

The State Auditor's Office is established in the state's Constitution and is part of the executive branch of state government. The office’s mission is to hold state and local governments accountable for the use of public resources.
