It’s important to note neither the City Auditor’s Office in Galveston nor the city attorney alleged any state bidding laws were broken in the way the Port of Galveston hired a firm to do four jobs in service of operations at the public docks.

The auditor’s report focused on procedures port administrators followed in hiring Octagon Consulting LLC for a series of jobs in late 2018, including performing a job audit, writing new employee policies and managing temporary workers and interns.
