Sound Transit seeking volunteers for Performance Audit Committee

Publish Date

Sound Transit is looking for citizen volunteers who are willing to contribute their knowledge and civic commitment to advising the agency by participating on a performance audit program at Sound Transit. The program's goal is to provide independent, third-party review of Sound Transit's performance in relation to agency goals and public expectations.

Formed in 2002, the Sound Transit Performance Audit Committee includes five citizen volunteers, two Sound Transit Board members, and two members of Sound Transit's Citizen Oversight Panel. The committee's function is to plan, direct, and monitor performance-based audits of the agency. Performance auditing is defined a systematic process of objectively obtaining and evaluating evidence regarding the performance of an organization, program, function or activity.

The five citizen volunteers on the committee represent each of the five geographic subareas served by Sound Transit. Currently, Sound Transit is seeking to find representatives for Pierce County, South King County and Snohomish County. The Committee is looking for citizens who have expertise in the fields of transportation, construction management, performance auditing, or engineering. Potential members must commit to serving at least 8 hours per month, with time commitments expanding slightly during audit and reporting periods.

Potential candidates are asked to send letters of interest to:

Joni Earl, CEO
Sound Transit
401 S. Jackson
Seattle, WA 98104
