We are trying to write some code to capture all users in our phoneroom departments. Goal overall is to capture this in one OU.  The challenge is that we have a set group policy for each phoneroom departments that sets certain browser settings that are seperated in different OU's. Any idea how we can accomplish both with out messing up the OU structure across sites?

You can simply create one root OU and then moev all your departmental OU in that root OU
Create AD security group and all requird users as a member in particular departmental OU to that group
then You can create required GPO and remove authentiacated users from security filtering permissions of GPO and instead add above group
Then apply above GPO to root OU so that it will be applied to only those users which are member of security group.

You can link multiple GPOs to same OU in this way and add respective Group there to whom GPO will apply

Ensure that users must be in root OU or in sub Ou somewhere underneath root OU so that security filtering will work
