I haven't heard of that sort of use of OSP.
The OSP tools are designed around the idea of a single user "owning"
the portfolio...so it would be difficult to use it to collaboratively
create something across a department.

The workflow process involved in OSP currently isn't as sophisticated
as you might need either.
