The 2009-11 Transportation Budget directed JLARC to conduct an audit of the capital cost accounting practices of the Washington State Ferries. The assignment follows a 2006 Joint Transportation Committee study of ferry financing and 2007 legislation (ESHB 2358) addressing a broad range of state ferries operational issues. JLARC’s audit focused on ferry terminals. JLARC found that the Office of Financial Management and State Ferries have made progress in implementing the 2007 legislation, but additional actions are necessary to ensure the Legislature receives appropriately detailed information and justification when State Ferries requests funding for ferry terminal preservation projects.
