Report Creators need to be local Admin?

A user in my team created a report by using Report Services 2005 from "Business Intelligence Developer Studio" tool. When he tried to "Deploy Report Project", he got error: "insufficient permissions to…".
After I add him into Local Administrator group, he is able to deploy his report.
Do I have to grant Admin permissions to all users who need to create report on Report Services? Are there any other permissions can help the users?
Add everyone into Local Admin group is very risk.
Thanks for recommendation,
George Jiang
