With Project Server 2003, you can use Active Directory (AD) as your enterprise resource repository. There are many benefits of using AD instead of using Project authenticated accounts in Project Server 2003 environments.
· As people join & leave your organization, just updating their status in AD updates them in Enterprise Resource List
· You can use AD groups to sync with Project Server 2003 groups to automatically assign permissions to users according to their role
· You can automate the new resource additions in Project server 2003
· You can use Sharepoint Services features with single sign-on
