Sudo supports granular controls on what each use can execute, see
sudoers(5) for detailed information, but as an Administrator I could
give a user permission to perform certain tasks on a machine but not
others (IE. They can restart apache, but not anything else). 

Sudo logs each command that is executed, this provides the administrator
with an audit trail of what commands users have been executing as root
on the machine. Yes this can be easily bypassed, but that's where usage
policy comes in...
