IT Tool for accepting UAC

Hi all,

If you are working within an IT department you recognize the challange of having an secure environment and were a user can't install anything they want. In some cases you need to give out administrator rights on their PCs as they travel etc.
For the user that don't have this permission, the Windows UAC can be a pain.

My question is the other way around:
Is there any IT tool out there which will extend the UAC dialog with e.g. "Request permission to IT". The tool then sends a UAC-request to the IT-department were they can see what they are requesting to do. At that point, the IT resp. can either accept or decline this request.

I hope you understand what I'm trying to do.

Thank you!
