I do something like that. The steps are rather easy. Basically you just add
the other remote using
git remote add
In order to set this up initially I do something like:
git clone http://github.org/some/new-project #fetch new-project from remote
git init --bare --shared new-project.git
# make a bare, empty local master copy
git add remote local /where/the/local/git/new-project.git
git push --all local
# /where/the/local/git/new-project.git is now a copy of the remote git
# and is know to me as "local".
Other users can then clone from either the company master repository or
from the remote one. Which ever is proper for them. If they need both, then
do the "git clone" from the one that they want as to be known as "origin".
And then do the "git remote add" command to add in the other. The git
push/pull/fetch default to accessing whichever one is named "origin".
Hope this makes sense.

This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. If this had been an
actual emergency, do you really think we'd stick around to tell you?
