AD uniformity

Hello

I need to set up uniformity of groups as the current setup is getting out of control. I am having trouble deciding what to go with. We are a company who have branches as well as subsadaries. We are based in Australia. I am looking at something like this for distribution lists:

SYD - Accounts
BNE - Accounts
or
Sydney - Accounts
Brisbane - Accounts

and then

All Accounts
for all accounts...i don't know

and for the security groups maybe something like:

Accounts L1
Accounts L2
Accounts L3 etc...

or SYD - Accounts - L1
or SYD - Accounts - Admin

Really need some advice here

choice is purely yours....I am in Aus as well...Abbreviations of the states works

Dizzy lists - SydAccounts, BrisAccounts, MelbAccounts, WAAccounts, NTAccounts, TasAccounts  <-- if you count it as Aus :-)

Sec Groups - your model depends on your business, if those account levels exist then go for it

set a naming convention for users as well - I like First.Last name

Maybe look at structuring your AD on a per state Basis as well

For distribution list i'm thinking of going with a tree structure like this:

Everyone                  
      ALL - NSW
                               ALL - Sydney      
                  Service - Sydney
                  Sales - Sydney
                  Accounts - Sydney
                  Legal - Sydney
                  Admin - Sydney
                  Customer Service - Sydney
                                                Management - Sydney
                                 Management - NSW

What do you think?

Anyone else have any ideas?

Also are there any applications out there to create bulk groups?
