The Pennsylvania auditor general began a performance audit of the Allegheny County Port Authority this week that will focus on whether the agency is effectively and efficiently using public money.
"With such important functions, and considering that the authority receives state tax dollars, it is essential to closely monitor the authority's activities and make recommendations for improvements where necessary," Auditor General Eugene DePasquale said in a press release.
The audit will include a review of capital projects, governance structure, contract procurement processes, service routes and schedules, according to the release.
An audit like this is scheduled about every four years, according to the release.
