Can't put  .Net assembly for SSIS package on SQL Server?

My SSIS package has been customised using .NET.  A new .Net assembly which introduces the new .NET classes for datasource interaction is referenced by the SSIS package.
The DBAs are strict on a policy that SQL Server 2005 servers are dedicated database servers and will not allow me to add the custom dll to the server.  Is there a way around this?

Hi Lucret09,
How are you
Assembly can be added to the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) by using .NET framework 2.0 Configuration. This is listed under Control Panel-> Administrative tools. Open it and expand .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration- expand My Computer. Select Assembly Cache. Click on the second link Add an assembly to the assembly cache link in right pane.  Browse the assembly and add

you can also put assemblies into C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\SDK\Assemblies and that they have to be strongly named to appear in the list. It is possible to use private assemblies in code but to do that you have to use late binding and something along the lines of Activator.CreateInstanceFrom

How does it get around having a non standard dll on the SQL server?
