The shortlist, consisting of 39 entries chosen from over 570 nominations, was announced earlier this week and features  projects and initiatives from across government.

Other entries include a cross-government team  which used innovative analysis to assess local authority bids for £250m of funding to protect weekly waste collections, and a team from HMRC whose work targeting offshore tax evasion is expected to bring in £16m of additional tax revenue by 2016.

Head of the civil service Sir Bob Kerslake described the awards, now in their eighth year, as " a fantastic opportunity to celebrate what is great about civil servants, their commitment, their passion and their innovation".

The final winners will be chosen by a panel of permanent secretaries and directors-general, the Comptroller & Auditor general, and representatives from sponsors Huawei and Ernst & Young.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Lancaster House on Thursday, 21 November.
