You can either make him a member of Account Operators Group in Domain or you can use the Delegate Control Option in AD. As for to install softwares on machine, give him the local administrator's password of all the computers. I believe it must be same across the organization. So that way you won't have to make him a Domain Admin.

Here is a useful link for understanding how delegation works:
