Financial Information and Transparency

The Comptroller of Public Accounts launched the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program in 2009 to recognize the efforts of local governments across Texas striving to meet a high standard for financial transparency online. The program requirements include posting of budget information, check registers and annual financial reports.

The Port of Houston Authority applied and received a Gold Leadership Circle Award for the first time in June 2012.  The Port Authority's renewal application earned another Gold level designation in July 2013, scoring 20 points out of a possible 20 on program criteria.

The Leadership Circle program was enhanced in March 2014 to include a new Platinum Award level, to spotlight entities that meet an even higher standard of financial transparency.  The new requirements include information on outstanding debt obligations, a link to the TexasTransparency.org website, as well as a pledge to post details of any proposed bond package, plus current debt information, within one business day of public notice of a bond election.  In May 2014, the Port Authority achieved the Platinum Leadership Circle Award with a perfect score of 22 points.  The Port Authority again achieved the Platinum level award in June 2015 with 23 out of a possible 23 points.  Click here for a copy of the award certificate.

Please note that the check register below reflects all disbursements made by the Port of Houston Authority.  The check register is separated into three sections:  (1) Payroll, (2) Operating and (3) Promotion & Development.

For 41 consecutive years, the Port of Houston Authority has received a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). The latest award was given for the Port Authority's 2014 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
