Calibrated data for 143 flat-spectrum extragalactic radio sources are presented at a wavelength of 850 μm covering a 5-yr period from 2000 April. The data, obtained at the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope using the Submillimetre Common-User Bolometer Array (SCUBA) camera in pointing mode, were analysed using an automated pipeline process based on the Observatory Reduction and Acquisition Control - Data Reduction (ORAC-DR) system. This paper describes the techniques used to analyse and calibrate the data, and presents the data base of results along with a representative sample of the better-sampled light curves. A re-analysis of previously published data from 1997 to 2000 is also presented. The combined catalogue, comprising 10 493 flux density measurements, provides a unique and valuable resource for studies of extragalactic radio sources.
