Yes. You put in one directory the files with the following suffixes:
.diff.gz, .dsc, .changes, .deb and .orig.tar.gz. For example, look at
[2] or any other debian package for that matter. Note that you have to
provide one .deb file, not one for each architecture supported by debian.
You can also see my web page, referenced in my signature.
