Screen Saver Seetings

Needing some help!

We currently have a screensaver policy on our campus that is enforced at the domain level via GPO. Some of our users 
are wanting the capability to be more restrictive on their screensaver lockout (e.g. ours is set at 10 minutes and they 
want a 5 minute timeout)

Is there any way to accommodate this without having to set up a new OU and a new GPO for that OU.

Basically is there a setting to allow users to set their screensaver timeout to less than 10 minutes and while 
simultaneously restricting them from going greater than 10 minutes?
