1. Identify the problem to be solved;
2. determine and perform the scope of work necessary to develop credible
assignment results; and
3. disclose the scope of work in the report

An Appraiser must gather and analyze information about those assignment elements that
are necessary to properly identify the appraisal problem to be solved.

Scope of Work Acceptability;
The scope of work must include the research and analyses that are necessary to develop
assignments results.

An appraiser must be prepared to support the decisions to exclude any investigtion,
method,or technique that apprear relevant to the client, another intended user, or
appraisers's peers.
An appraiser must not allow the assignment conditions to limit the scope of work.
An appraiser must not allow the intended use of an assignment, or client's objectives to
cause the assignment results to be biased.

Thev Appraisal report must contain sufficient information to allow intended users to
understand the scope of the work performed.
