Administrator Delegation Help

Scenario:
We have 20 Sites globally, 100 Servers (ALL Win 2003) Approx. 3000 Desktop users split between global sites. To manage this we have a service desk tier 1/2/3 and on each site with have what we call low grade administrators (Hands & feet, general daily admin duties etc. etc.) my issue is sorting and an AD Account for these site administrators that allows them to conduct daily duties. In the past Domain Admin rights have been given out all over the place - this has led to serious issues. Can anyone suggest a good solid format for managing this?

Make them members of below group in A.D.>

-Account Operators
-Backup Operators
-Network Configuration Operatos
-Print Operators

However above given solution is not ultimate because of lake of information. We can also create saperate OUs for each site and delegate administrator to their respective OU, that could be better solution.

If you can provide me list what tasks you want them to do?

I would stay away from the built in groups. These will give more rights than you probably want to give. I would only delegate the rights needed. Do the level 3 people need to logon to the DCs? if they do then you should probbaly give them domain admin, For the other groups they can manage users and computers for their own location if you have the OUs properly seperated. It all depends on what you need these groups to do.
