"Administer" can also mean "to mete out," as in administering medications
(Are they meting out cabbages and potatoes or overseeing something that has
to do with cabbages and potatoes? If overseeing, administrate might be
clearer ... of course in that case, "managing" would make sense, too).
Clear as mud. Maybe I'm not the one to respond to this post!
Generally, if one term isn't preferred over the other and either will "do,"
I just do whatever I can to be consistent throughout.
