As it is written on the UEFA web page “The content of these dossiers was based on the bid requirements provided to the national associations on 26 April 2013. Along with their dossiers, the bidders also had to submit various signed agreements, namely staging, stadium and host city agreements. To ensure that the evaluation would be as fair and objective as possible, a set of assessment parameters was defined for each of the bid sectors. In addition, a list of open points was provided to each bidder on 23 May 2014, to give them an opportunity to provide clarifications. The evaluation report is the result of a thorough evaluation process conducted over a period of three months by the UEFA administration and has been provided to UEFA Executive Committee members ahead of the selection of hosts on 19 September 2014.”
