A Professional Services Agreement is a formal document that outlines the rights and responsibilities of the parties - the customer and the contractor (an organization or an independent entrepreneur); the latter uses their qualifications and experience to perform project-based services - laboratory analysis, market planning, software development, etc. Use this contract if you know your collaboration will last for a short period of time to detail the work to be completed and the timeline of its delivery.
Note that if you represent a government agency or a business and you require intangible services in a certain industry defined by the rare skills, you need to sign a Personal Service Contract that will secure the talent of a specific individual - for instance, this is how you can hire a famous painter to design a logo for your website.

Depending on the nature of your contract, you may also negotiate confidentiality, non-compete clause, and insurance coverage that will safeguard your interests.
