Abstract • We present the Distant Giants Survey, a three-year radial velocity campaign to measure P(DG∣CS), the conditional occurrence of distant giant planets (DG; M p ~ 0.3-13 M J, P > 1 yr) in systems hosting a close-in small planet (CS; R p < 10 R ). For the past two years, we have monitored 47 Sun-like stars hosting small transiting planets detected by TESS. We present the selection criteria used to assemble our sample and report the discovery of two distant giant planets, TOI-1669 b and TOI-1694 c. For TOI-1669 b we find that $M\sin i=0.573\pm 0.074\,\,{M}_{{\rm{J}}}$ , P = 502 ± 16 days, and e < 0.27, while for TOI-1694 c, $M\sin i=1.05\pm 0.05\,\,{M}_{{\rm{J}}}$ , P = 389.2 ± 3.9 days, and e = 0.18 ± 0.05. We also confirmed the 3.8 days transiting planet TOI-1694 b by measuring a true mass of M = 26.1 ± 2.2 M . At the end of the Distant Giants Survey, we will incorporate TOI-1669 b and TOI-1694 c into our calculation of P(DG∣CS), a crucial statistic for understanding the relationship between outer giants and small inner companions.
