Surveying The Score is a storyline mission and a preparation mission for The Big Score carried out by all three protagonists and Lester Crest. At the start of the mission Michael has to drive to the Vanilla Unicorn strip club that Trevor just took over, where Lester asks to meet him. Franklin also arrives shortly followed by another argument between Michael and Trevor which is interrupted by Lester’s arrival. Lester instructs the trio what they have to do forming two pairs, Michael and Franklin, and Trevor and Lester.
Michael and Franklin have to drive down to the Union Depository and observe the security at the entrance while Lester and Trevor drive to Sandy Shores airfield and return back to the city in a chopper. Michael and Franklin drive towards the back entrance where the securicars enter the Union Depository and wait for Trevor and Lester to do their thing.
Trevor has to follow the two securicars driving through town in the helicopter with Lester moving towards the Union Depository while Lester observes their route and plans accordingly. They search for a spot where they can take over the securicars without alerting the police or any security.
After the securicars reach the Union Depository, Lester asks Trevor to fly above the whole that is being dug for the new LS Metro. He takes a look inside to help with creating his plan. Once he has enough info Trevor flies him back to Sandy Shores airfield. Michael also drops Franklin back home after which the mission ends.

This leads to a face off between Michael and Trevor who find themselves pointing guns at each other.
