Providing that is, to a great extent, actually the job of whoever 
approves versions of Cygwin for you.

That's because the version number of cygwin itself barely begins to 
define an actual fixed configuration of the whole Cygwin environment 
you'll be installing: that's _one_ package whose version number has been 
nailed down, but _hundreds_ of others left totally floating.

The only practical way of defining an installation of which it can even 
make sense to call it "approved" is to host a fixed mirror repository 
that's controlled by whoever does the approving, inside the organization 
that requires said approval.
