I do not believe this is possible, since Permissions are controlled by Active Directory. Typically only network administrators have access to AD.

That being said, what you could do is create (or have your admin create) a folder whith the explicit permission that Everyone has Full Control over the FILES in that folder. This way, when you, or anyone modifies the file (or any file in that folder) it will simply inherit the desired permissions set at the folder level.
