>From the few details you've given it seems like what you are wanting
is really two things:

1.) A collaborative (multi-user) project planning/management web
application that could be used to plan and stage your project:
assignment of tasks, responsibilities, timeframes, costing and so on.

2.) A collaborative workspace -- also a web app. -- where project
participants can create and share and archive electronic material.

I have a preference for *fully functional* open source applications --
i.e. not the type where one has to pay to get the real thing -- and
use the following:

1.) OpenERP

2.) Collaborative Portal Server (CPS) (by Nuxeo)

    If I anticipated having to scale to many gigabytes of data then
    instead of CPS I'd use:

    Nuxeo DM and/or Nuxeo DAM

The firms behind OpenERP and CPS/Nuxeo DM offer service contracts if
you want support.
