Hi,
What does he need access to specifically?

Either you log that consultant in with a regular account and use the Run As...when required. Or log him yourself to an administrative account.

He would need to login through RWW to the SBS 2008 server. He will need to work on an access db project.

Since the consultant needed access and we couldn't find a more plausable solution, we just created an account for him with administrator rights.
