- There is a written contract between the private investigator and the party requesting services;
- The private investigator offering the services operates independently of the party requesting services, except for the time frame and quality of finished work as specified in the contract;
- Compensation for services is negotiated between the 2 parties and is paid for each service performed; and
The party requesting services furnishes neither equipment nor the place of employment to the private investigator.
