I have no idea what type of user profiles your company uses or how they configures user access permissions, however if you can gain full control access to your profile or registry the follows keys may be of interest.
The key that determines if the a screen saver is password protected is at:
HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\ScreenSaverIsSecure - a value of 0 means it is not password protected and 1 means that it is protected.
A few other keys of interest are:
HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\ScreenSaveActive - 1 means user has selected a screen saver; 0 means the user has not chosen a screen saver
HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\ScreenSaverTimeout - idle time in milliseconds before the screen saver activates
HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\SCRNSAVE.EXE - specifies name and path of the screen saver.
