What's the best project management software for this task?

I am leading a team of approximately 15 people who will be working together to create a database of academic policies (maybe 20-40), categorize these policies by department/area, assess their current status (some don't exist yet, we'll just identify the need), prioritize need for attention, work to create and/or revise policies, and then continue to update and maintain. Our group of 15 will likely divide into smaller subcommittees to do more focused work. Is there a piece of software (above and beyond google docs) that will help facilitate collaboration on this task? Is something like Evernote or Basecamp what I'm looking for? How to choose between platforms? I'm willing to pay for the right thing, but it's essential there is no major learning curve for users.

How to stop torrents at work?

I'm sure this question will not make me the most popular student at the dance, but is there a way to identify (via IP) machines running BitTorrent clients within an internal network (ie. work)? My company has around 50 employees, and the old, "Please don't torrent at work" doesn't seem to be doing much good anymore. It brings our email and web browsing to a near standstill, and dropping by the "usual suspects" is not only tiresome, but doesn't seem to find all the sources of traffic any longer. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
