Check-In question

Just wondering if someone here could help me. First let me explain how our process works. I create a drawing, sign it, get a checker to sign it, and then get an engineer to approve and sign it. It will then route through our document control system and get approved. Let's say I create a drawing and it is at Rev. A. I print the drawing and get the signatures and then start the routing process. I then check the drawing into PDMWorks as Rev. A. Before the document is approved a mistake is found on the drawing. I then have to check the drawing back out and fix the mistake. The drawing will remain at Rev. A because it has not been approved through our DC system. The problem. When I check it back in, it will be at Rev. B, which would be incorrect. I know that I can allow latest revision overwrite and revision bumping, but if I do that then everyone else can too, which I don't want. What is the best way to handle this? Is there any way in which I can only allow admins to overwrite latest revion and revision bumping?
