What is the best way to list temporary agency work on a resume?

I’m revising a friend’s resume who has been doing temp work for the past year. He has gotten some great experience doing so and I want to highlight it on his resume, I’m just not sure how. Any pointers?

    If your friend has been working for different clients through the same temp agency you could try this.
    The Temp Agency
    May 01 – June 09

    Programmer II assigned by contract to The Pentagon, US Department of Defense
    January 09 – June 09

    Internet Security Analyst assigned by contract to Yahoo, Inc.
    September 08 – December 08

    Computational Fluid Dynamics Analyst assigned by contract to Boeing, Inc.
    May 01 to August 08
    or simply “assigned” instead of “assigned by contract”
