The Federal Procurement Data Center

The Federal Procurement Data Center (FPDC), part of the U.S. General Services Administration, operates and maintains the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS). The FPDS is the official Federal procurement data source. Agencies report each award over $25,000 separately with details about that award such as; industry, place of performance, type of contractor, if the contractor meets SBA's size standards, and amount. Awards under $25,000 are also reported, but in summary form that does not include specific details about each small purchase. The agencies' prime contractors, who win awards over $500,000 ($1 million if construction) also report on their subcontracting to small business by goal category.

In summary, the executive departments and agencies award over $200 billion annually for goods and services. The system can identify who bought what, from whom, for how much, when and where.

You have to register only if you wish to purchase reports.  Their website is at FPDS.
