We present the science database produced by the Formation and Evolution of Planetary Systems (FEPS) Spitzer Legacy program. Data reduction and validation procedures for the IRAC, MIPS, and IRS instruments are described in detail. We also derive stellar properties for the FEPS sample from available broadband photometry and spectral types, and present an algorithm to normalize Kurucz synthetic spectra to optical and near-infrared photometry. The final FEPS data products include IRAC and MIPS photometry for each star in the FEPS sample and calibrated IRS spectra.

We are grateful to the anonymous referee and George Rieke for providing valuable comments. We also thank Debbie Padgett, Tim Brooke, Dan Watson, Pat Morris, and the rest of the FEPS team for their many contributions throughout this project. This work is based on observations made with the Spitzer Space Telescope, which is operated by JPL/Caltech under a contract with NASA. The program made use of data and resources from the FEPS project, which receives support from NASA contracts 1224768, 1224634, and 1224566 administered through JPL. This research made use of the SIMBAD database, operated at CDS, Strasbourg, France, as well as data products from the Two Micron All Sky Survey, which is a joint project of the University of Massachusetts and the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center/Caltech, funded by NASA and the NSF.|
