The bash man page does not mention any global logout file...

FILES
       /bin/bash
              The bash executable
       /etc/profile
              The systemwide initialization file, executed for login shells
       ~/.bash_profile
              The personal initialization file, executed for login shells
       ~/.bashrc
              The individual per-interactive-shell startup file
       ~/.bash_logout
              The  individual  login shell cleanup file, executed when a login
              shell exits
       ~/.inputrc
              Individual readline initialization file

You could modify the one in /etc/skels but it would only apply to new users, and can be changed by them later...
Or, you could chown/chmod the ~/.bash_logout and put '. ~/.bash_logout.user' in it...
