The city that wanted to host the Games and the National Olympic Committee of New Zealand would be responsible.

The questions would be about the city's motivation for hosting the Olympics, existing venues to host Olympic events, what venues would need to be built to host Olympic events, existing police, hotels, and transportation and if the city had enough of these to host an Olympics or would they need more police, hotels, and transportation. The answers to these questionnaires are reviewed by the IOC to determine whether the city has the resources, and can create the resources they don't have, to host the Olympics. The IOC will select five cities and these cities will be in contention to host the Games.
