Sometimes the math doesn't work out to be so pretty, and in those cases we've either rounded the new Doff values or altered the Dilithium cost (since Duty Officers are given a Dilithium value in the Holdings system, for determining project cost) to make the final values work out to a nice round figure.
This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for the answer, let's see if I can figure this out.

Upgrade Starbase to Tier IV previously required 100 (non-spec) blue duty officers.
(200*500) = 100,000/75 = 1333 common duty officers (probably rounded to 1350)

Upgrade Shipyard to Tier IV previously required 100 blue Tac or Sec
(100*500) = 50,000/150 = 333 common tac or sec duty officers (350-ish)

Not as bad as I thought, still a lot of commons to hold/come up with.

So - are ALL projects going to common duty officers, or are some still going to require purple?
