check if user has Admin rights

I setup this custom inventory rule to detect if the user logged in has Administrator access.  However it does not work because the agent runs as the SYSTEM account.  Is there a way to modify this so it picks up the logged in user.  

ShellCommandTextReturn( powershell "([Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent().Groups.IsWellKnown('BuiltinAdministratorsSid') -eq $true)")

Use the scripting module so you can specify the run as of the script. Then, have the script create a marker file that you can collect by a CIR.
