Arrow Project Management Using Linux

Let us say you have been hired at QRS Ltd. as their Linux system administrator. The company is now involved in three projects and is organized as follows:

..........................Project 1.....Project 2..........Project 3
Team Leaders....J.Smith........W.Li.................M.Khan

The requirements are as follows:

1. Each user must have his/her own account and private storage area for files.
2. Each project must have a storage location for collaborative work.
3. All project leaders must be able to share files in a common location.
4. There must be a central repository for files that secretaries can post to.
5. All project leaders must have the ability to add users to the system as demand dictates.
6. All team member's acccounts must expire at the end of the year.

How would you set up this scenario?

I am trying to do this by strictly using the command prompt, so if anyone has further suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
