Don't know for that but if you install Sarg it will generate reports in html which are very good and could be viewed by your admins over the network.
 
@Benn, do a proper Google/Bing/Yahoo search. Mine was "squid log mysql", and first couple of hits contained a solution.

It seems that the way to do this is to make Squid execute external program for logging, and this program in turn to write logs to a (MySql) database, or whatever.
