Default Dos batch file administrator privileges required

This is my first post, so here goes...

I have written a dos batch file that makes use of the "pushd" command. On my network, in order to use this command elevated privileges are required. Is it possible to do the following in one batch file, and if so, how (because I can't seem to figure it out!)?

Prompt user running batch file for administrator password
Re-run same batch file only with elevated privileges
Skip administrator prompt and execute other commands in the file

Also, is it possible to pass variables to a new command prompt window that is spawned?

I was hoping to do the above with one batch file.
