You need to use the Deligation of Control Wizard. Right-Click the OU that you wish to delegate control of and select Delegate Control. Follow the wizard to add the group or user  and specify what you want them to be able to do.

Hello jjmartineziii,
thanks for the quick update, i am bit worried about this, we used to do this but now time to delegate control to that particular user.i can create the custom task for delegation , but do not want end up more than what the permission enough to do the task, i am not sure what will the enough and less risky for me.

the task is to change account information specially in department and phone number attribute in the user accounts, any specific task you can name it?

thanks again.
Delegation of control is the only way to do it. I recommend you create a custom task. Then on the permissions tab, select property-specific. Select the write read/write permissions on the ones you wish to give.

For example, if you wish to give  the ability to edit the street address, give them "Read street" and "Write st"
