I've gone through and configured group policy for my domain so it backs up BitLocker recovery keys to AD and enforces select policies, but I've run into an issue. (ETA: Windows 7 machines)

Most of my people who have laptops are local administrators on their machines. Local admins can disable BitLocker. Any ideas how I could restrict access to the BitLocker management interface to users who are local admins (but not domain admins)? I didn't see anything in group policy that could accomplish this. Thanks!

This can be done easily with these two steps
   1.  Configure a GPO to remove the Bitlocker Icon from Control Panel.
   2. Configure Application Control Policies (Applocker) to block manage-bde.exe.
