I had forwarded this request to Alison as I believe the transaction had
already taken place between OWASP Foundation and Aspect Security to pay
Jason for his training.

I am not clear yet on the amount of the invoice, but yes, it would be an
internal to the U.S. transfer of funds.

I need an answer on this issue. If you are not the person I should contact,
please let me know who I need to talk to.

In short, we need to pay Jason for his training and have some money to
receive from OWASP. Can part of this amount be sent to Jason, to avoid
crossing borders multiple times?

>> Hello Kate,
>> Some of the expenses were estimated higher than the actual amount due.
>> We still need to get the final values from one supplier, but the loss 
>> is now estimated to be around USD 850.
>> Anyway, we still owe Aspect Security their share in the trainings.
>> Since the Foundation will need to provide funds to cover Dinis, Mark 
>> and Samy expenses, is it possible to have the funds transferred 
>> directly to Aspect? What do I need to do to have this approved and 
>> executed?
>> In summary, we should receive USD 2470 from the foundation to cover 
>> the travel for Dinis, Mark and Samy. We need to pay Aspect USD 2300.
>> Can the Foundation pay Aspect and we keep the remaining USD 170 as 
>> credit to be settled later?
>> Thanks,
>> Lucas
