Defense contracts as a data file instead of just text

Public information about defense contracts is published as text on:

 

http://www.defense.gov/Contracts/

 

It would be useful to have a regularly updated data set with contract information available for download (e.g. project name, project id, vendor/company, cost, link to description, link to earmarks, etc.).

 

It would make it easier to track costs.
