Admin rights should depend on authority and responsibility.

Anyone who is given admin rights is given responsibility. Anyone who logs in as admin should have authority to log in and authority to perform whatever tasks they intend.

Monitoring user computers - for what purpose? Once you have established the reason for monitoring, then it is easy to work out the methods and frequency etc. If the user is given great authority over the computer then you may be monitoring as a service to the user (or, properly, to the customer behind the user).
