How can I best manage documents for a fleet of freelancers online? Particularly including signing W-9s and contracts digitally.

So, say that I have a bunch of freelance writers. There are two particular administrative things involved:
1. One-time: they should sign a contract, and fill out and sign W-9.
2. Also they should be able to keep mailing address updated.
* I'd like to get an email from the system when a writer updates her address. (I mean, I'd REALLY like it to update my payee system in my online banking interface, but I know that's not going to happen.)
* By "sign" I'm okay with "HIT X TO INDICATE YOUR ACCEPTANCE."
I'd like to give new people a URL, basically, that says "What follows is a contract and a W-9; fill them out and hit save. You can manage your mailing address here."
Then I guess... that mails the completed paperwork to me? Or lives in a database? (Though would a database be secure? Eek scary.)
Can I... build a thing? Is there a system that does this? I have no idea. I got nothing.
