I think the main issue was "redirecting folder" terminology which caused confusion and missunderstanding betwen your IT Director and yourself.
From your latest post it seems that the only thing that changes in the new URLs is the domain name and that the folder structure and the rest of the URL remains the same.
In this case, the Elsmarc post (further above) pretty much gave you the template for the .htaccess redirect rule, you just need to adjust it a bit to cover www in domain name (if your domain names use www format).
In this way you will achieve 301 page-to-page redirect, but without the need to analyse and specify each page URL redirect separately, which I believe is the end result both, your IT Director and you want :)
Just saw your post from few minutes ago. I think the suggestion is not to use Redirect 301 nor RedirectMatch if you use RewriteRule elsewhere in .htaccess. You can use what Elsmarc posted above, adjusting for www part (if used in domain name) or replacing the RewriteCond to match a HTTP Request that contains a specific folder in URL from the old domain (if you want only to redirect URLs that have a specific folders in URL rather than all URLs from the old site).
