If Wiki allowed for password protection would it fit your requirements? 
  I run a Wiki on Zope (ZWiki), which allows for password protection. 
You could also use Apache and setup the httpd.conf file to require 
authentication when someone accessed that part of the site.

Something like Zope's CMF Workflow[2] might also be a good fit....then 
there's OpenFlow[3] (also running on Zope :).

I don't know if these __exactly__ match what you are looking for, but 
hopefully they will get you started.
