Network Licensing

We have approximately 9 people at our Engineering Firm and need to buy a license of Microsoft Project for occasional use.  We would like to buy a standard project license that we could share among the 9 different users.  We don't need the sharepoint\server services or the collaboration services as we only use project occassionally to create construction\project schedules for clients.  So the underlying question is can we buy a shared network version of project standard? We really do not want to buy 9 standalone copies at 500 dollars a piece.

Thank You!

MS Project licenses are not that expensive when purchased in blocks of 5 or more using the Microsoft Open License program. I would expect to pay closer to $150 each instead of retail box price of $600 each. Overall you will probably be happier with each user being able to run their own license and the overall cost is not significatly larger.
