User managed network share??

Last Modified: 2013-11-25
We are an all Windows shop, single forest, single domain; AD 2003. We are looking for a way to create network shared folders, grant ownership to the folder, and then let the owner of the folder manage user access and permissions; preferably through some sort of interface, similar to how Public Folders work.  Is there a product or software out there that will allow this? Each user has a home directory and each department has a department share. We want to give users the ability to share files between different departments and make it easy to manage. Any ideas??
