MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - New state figures show Vermont companies got 519 government contracts worth $103 million in the fiscal year that ended June 30, up nearly 300 percent from 2012.

That’s according to the Vermont Procurement Technical Assistance Center, which is part of the state Department of Economic Development.

Center director Robin Miller says her organization helps win government contracts for Vermont companies making everything from handmade flutes to spare parts for military aircraft and ships.

Recent government contracts include a $46,000 order for Morrisville sports store Power Play Sports to provide lacrosse sticks to the Coast Guard and $95,000 in contracts from the Vermont National Guard for sewing and alterations. Those alterations contracts went to Bennington’s Evergreen Alterations and Lee Anthony Fabric of Lyndonville.
