I am a member of "Freelancer.com" which has a fairly high number of 
asterisk consultants that bid against each other on projects that are 
posted.  I think this may be exactly what all of you are looking for.  
Jobs seem to go for ridiculously low rates (basically bounty rates) and 
as such I have yet to win one ;)  Participating consultants are rated by 
their past employers so you get a "reference" for work they have done in 
the past, and you get a feeling for their expertise by reading the reviews.

I can't say I have used it to get something done, but it seems like the 
answer to me...
