Jen digs into user permissions around GP utilities. I would generally come down on the side of just using ‘sa’ for something like this. GP Utilities are rarely used, primary for install.

Involving an ‘sa’ user to add a new company or run another utility shouldn’t be a big burden and adds a little safety by involving someone else.
I’m sure there are extreme circumstances where you might want a non-sa user doing things like creating companies (REITs with hundreds of small entities come to mind), but that isn’t the norm
