Site Group Policy replication

We currently have an Active Directory forest with 3 child domains.
We manage one of the child domains and do not have permissions in the root domain or in the other child domains.

The administrators in the head office recently created us some site Group Policies and assigned us with rights to amend the policies.

These policies appear to be held physically on the root domain controllers and are not replicated to any of the domain controllers in the child domain. This causes issues as the link to the head office suffers from fairly high latency and the site polices sometimes do not apply new settings.

Is it possible to get the site policies that relate to the sites in our child domain to be replicated to the domain controllers in the child domain? This will allow machines to access them at LAN speeds.

Confirm that the head office administrators have created and linked the GPOs on a DC in the child domain. This will place the GPO information in the SYSVOL share of the child domain, which will replicate to all DCs in your child domain.

If the head office administrators are unwilling to do this, then the performance you are seeing is not likely to change.

This was my understanding as well. I thought I would just check if there was a way around this.
