This chapter describes certain critical operational and management principles that apply before, during, and after the field work. These principles encompass the basic steps of: determining whether additional persons from outside the jurisdiction should be invited in; initiating an invitation; evaluating and responding to an invitation; preparing for the investigation through collaboration and consultation; developing and issuing basic administrative instructions prior to departure to the field; and initiating, implementing, and addressing the aftermath of the field investigation. The chapter concludes with a brief discussion of selected emerging developments in the operational approach to field investigations.
