Modify user permission or group permissions to allow or deny the 'Change Password' permission as desired.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the article reference, I had already checked the security permissions to Allow for password changes, but I don't where exactly the user changes the password. I went to My Profile section but I didn't saw any option related to change password.

I'm not experienced with Project Server 2010, but from the tech-net library:

"Forms authentication is provided through a membership provider and individual membership providers may prevent the changing of passwords. Please verify this with your membership provider if you intend to use this permission. "

Free Tool: IP Lookup

Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Im not using Forms Authentication instead I'm using Windows Authentication. Thanks for trying to help me out I appreciate it a lot.

Ah, that does make a difference.  Users who access SharePoint sites from Windows Explorer will authenticate by using the credentials the Internet Explorer process is running under. By default, these credentials are the credentials that the user used to log on to the computer. Services or applications that access SharePoint Server in Integrated Windows authentication mode will attempt to authenticate by using the credentials of the running thread, which is the identity of the process by default.

Basically, users will have to change/update their passwords directly to the windows system and not via the Project Server interface.  There may be some 3rd party tools available, but by default users will not be able to change their windows passwords via Project Server.

Good luck!

Specifically for this, no.  But a good place to search is http://www.sharepointreviews.com/

From their 'about':
