rsync only complete files?

I have an external FTP server and want to rsync the contents of it to
an internal server on a regular basis. Easy enuf with rsync...
HOWEVER, some of the file transfers occuring to my external ftp server
are in excess of 1Gb. What I would like to do is have rsync only sync
files from the external box *when they are complete*. i.e.: If a
external user is ftp uploading a 1Gb file to my external ftp server, I
only wish to rsync it to my internal box when the whole 1Gb file is on
the external box, and not before. There are some complexities with virus
scanning and user education that is forcing me to do this.
Can rsync be instructed to transfer files based on their modification
or access time?
