Tasmanian businesses are being supported through the state government's Buy Local Policy.
Construction and Building Minister Sarah Courtney said the latest statistics ending December 31 showed that the Buy Local Policy was working.
"A total of 92.19 per cent of contracts were awarded to Tasmanian businesses in the last quarter, with the total value of those contracts sitting at $68.54 million," she said.
"Pleasingly, the number of contracts awarded to Tasmanian businesses in the last quarter was 59."
She said the government was committed to growing the number of Tasmanian businesses awarded government contracts to 90 per cent by 2022, with aims to continue to exceed the goal.
"Our Buy Local Policy for government procurement means the benefits to the wider community, such as job creation and social benefits, must be taken into account when decisions are made on awarding contracts," she said.
Ms Courtney said the more the state government could to promote local spending, the better it was for all Tasmanians.
