The Tasmanian government has confirmed that 11 children will be removed from its contracted Safe Pathways care provider, citing "anomalies" identified by a review of operations.

The move comes just a fortnight after revelations in the media that the for-profit company receives hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars in exchange for helping vulnerable children who are in the care of the state.

"The transfer will take place as soon as possible, but allowing time to ensure that all children are placed in appropriate alternative care with as little disruption as possible," Human Services Minister Jacquie Petrusma said on Friday, noting that a review of the company is ongoing.
