We have set up a new network with AD and Sharepoint for all of our staff to use. With 10 departments and nearly 2000 staff member it is very time consuming and burdonsome to create all of the user account for one person. My question is, does a solution exist by which:-
1. Deparment heads can create accounts for their dept employess by way of a restricted interface (within windows server 2003 or third party software)
2. Is there a webpart available in sharepoint for this task?
3. Any other suggestions?

The other option is to use CSVDE to import them all in one go?

Be carefull with alloing other departments to create their own accounts.

With so many people doing it there is bound to be inconsistency in the data entered.
