This survey and the resulting report meet the requirements of the "Alternative presumption of compliance" for customary and reasonable compensation described in the above-referenced regulations.

Participants are assured that all responses are totally confidential, will not be associated with your identity or e-mail address, and will only be released in aggregate form.
