Folder permissions on server 2012

Last Modified: 2015-12-03
Dear All
I am struggling with folder permissions on server 2012, and would like some help with the following please.
I have a route folder called UMA, under that I have various sub folders like IT, HR, Business Development and so on. I have created the users and groups by department and would like to achieve the following:
1.      All groups to be able to see the UAM share and sub folders within UMA
2.      All groups should not be able to add any extra folders to the main UMA folder (root).
3.      Only groups that the system administrator add to the each sub folders should be accessible by that one group.
4.      Once that group has access to their corresponding folder they should be able to add folders but not be able to delete but can delete file with any sub folder.

I hope that explain my situation and is following best practice but if not I would be happy to take advice.
Many thank in advance.
