Five of the eleven challenges have now completed Phase 1, which involves testing different approaches to the challenge raised.

Most of the GovTech Catalyst challenges are at an early stage of development so measuring long term economic effects is not yet possible. Independent economic analysis will be undertaken as part of measurement and evaluation at a later stage.

All information on the GovTech Catalyst, including the selection criteria can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/the-govtech-catalyst-challenge-process#public-sector-challenge-process
