Controling Apps/Updates for an itunes account

Last Modified: 2012-08-14
I have 10 users that we've givin IPADS to. They use goodreader and sugarsync to sync various .pdf files that we upload for them. The problem I'm having is that  there are about 5 apps that we've purchased and installed on their ipads using one apple ID, once the ipads are configured I "Forget" the apple ID on the device and they can then use their own apple ID to purchase other items they may want personally with out the company being charged. When ever there is an update to an app we require them to have, I have to give them the Password to the apple ID so they can update. Is there a way to limit or prevent purchases, other than authorized purchases on a particular account. This way I wouldn't mind giving out the password to them, and having to fear they would forget to use their own id to purchase personal apps, or songs or whatever they do? I hope I explained that correctly, please ask for clarification if need be.
