setting permissions on a folder using group policy

I have researched and note the GPO settings i need.

The problem is i need to do this across a range of member servers and only want to add a user account permissions to the folder, NOT remove the current user permissions or stop permissions from being changed when another applicaiton requires to write to this folder

Using psexec with cacls as the command is faster and more efficient unless you want to wait till the system reboots presumably you will add a startup script.
Depending on the specifics I.e. how granular are the settings/parameters you want icacls, xcacls might be an alternative vbscript and powershell is also an option.
