Presumably, the items from special projects are built, not bought. 40 hours to build something from alien technology isn't bad at all.

BTW, "equal purchasing power" is not converting each tech to enough materials to build a piece. Each tech can only buy one specific item. And if you have them in storage I assume that means you don't want that one specific item. It would be unfair to reward someone who only ever played ISE with full all sets just because they stockpiled 20 shield tech.

Fair conversion IMHO would be:
2 EDCs = 1 BNP + however many omega marks you get from an elite STF (this is the base reward for elite STFs)
1 rare salvage = whatever it costs to buy a MkX anti-borg weapon (or slightly less if the new borg weapons are better than the old ones)
1 proto salvage = whatever it costs to buy a MkXII anti-borg weapon
1 tech = maybe about 1/3rd of what it costs to build a piece of that type and mark
