I'm looking for an open-source software for collaborative documentation management with the following:

  1. May be installed on local server
  2. May be connected to Active Directory for authentification
  3. Versions control
  4. Compare of versions and track changes

I use Gitlab, however, unfortunately, it doesn't accept MS office (doc,docx) for versions control and comparing in the Web appication.

Did you consider Google Docs and if you did, what aspect of Google Docs fails to deliver your requirements?

Collaboration is superb, history tracking/version control is also supported out of the box and it allows you to download the document in various document formats in case you need that too (PFDs, open documents, MS office formats...)
