English translation:When allocating grants for 1997 and 1998
Explanation:
Just a suggestion.

For 'regleringsbrev' Gullberg's fackordbok svensk - engelsk gives:
official document placing appropriations (government grants, votes of supply) at the disposal of the authorities concerned

I thought of \'government circular\' first of all, but it seems basically to be a note accompanying the grant with advice on how to use it!

agree  xxxKirstyMacC: Interestingly, the French use the letter-like word 'envelope' for a budget appropriation. Peek inside and see what drops out...

  -> Thanks! You'd think academics would know by themselves what to do with money...

agree  Mario Marcolin: "brev" in the sense of Lat. brevarium, short official circular

  -> So that's where it comes from! Always good to get the full picture.
