Third Party Updates Bios Password save location

We use a bios password (requirement from our Security admin) which means that Third Party Updates for Dell fail because it can't access the Bios to update. The ability to save a Bios Password somewhere in SCCM TPU's area to be supplied to the TPU process when required. Not sure how complicated this is or how it could be done, but currently the bios update option doesn't seem possible using TPU if you have a Bios password. Yes, I realize I can use CCTK to create a manual deployment but obviously TPU is much simpler. I have verified that once the Pwd is removed the bios update works fine. NOTE- the logs were no help identifying this was the issue, maybe something could be done with that also - "Can't run update because password set on BIOS" or something like that :) (rather than 0x87d00705)
