Control Outlook contacts in Exchange?

Is there a way to prevent people from making new folders under contacts or adding new contacts?  We'd like to have one person enter that information and one list for the entire company for all business contacts.  Is there an app or software that could help with that?  

Any suggestions or confirmation of lack of solution to this issue are greatly appreciated!!

You cannot stop users from doing anything in their mailbox. It is their mailbox and they have full control.

Only if it is a shared mailbox or a Contact folder in public folder then you can control it.

Thanks for the replies.  I didn't think we would be able to have that kind of control but I wanted some backup to confirm my thought.
