So you clicked on the "edit career" button at the bottom of their info page and it said that they still needed 200 exp before they could be promoted?
Also you need to be one full rank above where you wish to raise them to, in other words a lt can not raise an ensign boff to lt.

This may be a dumb question; but (assumiing you spent enough skill points on your character to get to Lt.Cmdr. 1 - have you completed the 'Promotion' mission from Admiral Quinn on the player character that these BOs are attached to as well?

I think you misread. You don't have to spend 200 more, you need to spend at least 200 skill points to go from Ensign to Lieutenant.

If you go to Career Options/Promote from your BO's character page, it should give the promotion requirements at the top. For example:

Required Rank: Lieutenant Commander
Required Skill Points Spent: 900/200
Required Starfleet Merits: 5734/300

This means that 1) You must be at least a Lieutenant Commander yourself to promote the officer. 2) You need to have spent at least 200 points (and if you put one ability up to rank 9, then you've already spent 900 points) and 3) You need 300 Merits to do so.

If you meet all these requirements, then all you have to do is click the Promote button on that dialogue box.

The quest has nothing to do with it. Once you´ve spent the points you are considered to be *insert higher rank*. I always promote my Boffs and change my "title" before going back to Quinn.
