I'm pretty sure that defining scope and payout is part of the onboarding
process with them.  If you would like, I would be happy to pass along their
contact information.  I know you've been passionate about the bug bounty
stuff in the past (why I added you to this thread) and it seems like you
would be a natural fit to lead such an effort if you're interested.  I see
a lot of value in doing it, but personally don't have the time to run with
it.  If not, we could put out a call for help on the Leaders list, assuming
that the Board/ED would be supportive of such an initiative.
