    5.   Email your approval of the estimated cost by responding to the WRTD’s emailed cost estimate (Step 4)
    6.   WRTD provides the requested charter service requested in Step 1
    7.  WRTD emails you an Invoice for the charter services provided
    8.   You initiate a Disurbsement Voucher in the invoice amount and attach the charter notification (Step 1), Business Purpose authorization (Step 3), and Invoice (Step 7)
