Hi, there are several ways to achieve your objective that range from simple to advanced solutions. Here are some examples.

Solution 1: Simple Off-line Collaboration
Enable FTP or direct server login access for the authorized updaters. The users will login, download a local copy, perform the updates to the word document, then upload to the server via FTP or direct server access.

Solution 2: Online Collaboration
Upload your Word documents to Google Docs and post the Google Doc URL to the intranet. When your users click on the URL on your intranet, it will take them to the Google Document location and prompt for user login. Your users should create their own login with Google if they don't have one already. After logging in to Google Docs, users can upload and save to the desktop and edit anytime from anywhere using a web browser. Users can share changes in real time. The files are stored securely online. There is no charge to use Google Docs.

Solution 3: Advanced Online Collaboration
Upload your Word documents to a pod in a persistent web meeting room created in Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro. After logging in to Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro, users are empowered to do screen sharing, file sharing, application sharing, online collaboration, dynamic whiteboarding, chat, multiperson video, polling, surveys and document sharing.

Thanks for that Radix-64,
I in the end did it using a ftp connection, and that works for my needs.
