At work we use aptdaemon to do that. You only need to add a pkla file to
authorize the relevant actions, and aptdcon / software-center will allow
installation from the users you authorize (typically, users physically
logged on the machine).
(We even have a patch to allow only a subset of packages but it is
unfortunately a bit too hackish.)
