GOAL: I would like to organize the past solicitations (from Fiscal Year 1999 onward) from the SBIR program at the US Navy into a Excel spreadsheet / csv file. I believe this is easiest with copy-and-paste, but I would love to hear from freelancers with data scraping expertise too.
TASKS: The archives for the SBIR program are publicly available at . I am hoping a freelancer can help me copy and paste this information into a spreadsheet where each row corresponds to a particular solicitation (and contains fields like the topic number, the description of the project, key words listed on the website, etc.). I can provide the specific information of interest once we get in touch.
SKILLS: While it may be possible to write a parser to extract this information, it seems to me (naively) that because the format of the website changes from year to year, copy-and-paste may be even more efficient.
TIME FRAME: Based on doing part of this myself, I expect this work to take about 10-12 hours. Getting it done within a few days would be ideal!
