use of operational vs operating when referring to expenses
It is more grammatically correct to say the sponsor is responsible for the "operational" expenses of the facility or the "operating" expenses?
Both are used as synonyms.
"Operational" is used in the sense of "functional" and is more frequently used with expenses.
Operating is used in the sense of "being in effect" or "involved in a kind of operation" and is prefered with system, profit, table and theatre as compound nouns.
