A building lightning protection system cannot be used as the grounding electrode required for a building electrical power system; however, can it be used as the grounding electrode for a separately derived system?

We're adding a separately derived system (step-down transformer) on the roof of a building that has a lightning protection system installed.  Can the separately derived system be grounded by bonding to the lightning protection system or does it need a separate grounding electrode conductor to a grounding electrode?
