About the Survey

The NASPP's Domestic Stock Plan Design Survey covers the design of stock option and both service-based and performance-based award programs for US employees, including eligibility and participation, share usage, overhang and burn rates, and grant terms and conditions.

The survey is part of the NASPP's trio of Stock Plan Design and Administration Surveys; this series of surveys constitutes the industry's most in-depth and respected source of data on trends in the design and administration of stock compensation programs. The other surveys in this series include the Domestic Stock Plan Administration Survey, which covers administration of US stock plans along with design and administration of ESPPs and outside director plans, and the Global Equity Incentives Survey, which covers design and administration of stock compensation offered to non-US employees.

The Domestic Stock Plan Design Survey was last published in 2010. In that year, the survey received close to 600 responses; we expect to have an even higher response rate this year.
