Project/Team Level Variable

Our Delivery organization are looking to normalize effort measures across our different teams. 

Like most,. our teams use story points throughout planning and delivery to estimate their work. But, story points are not a standard, consistent way to measure effort across teams as each team may define a story point differently. Therefore, we must provide a way to normalize the story point values.

Each team will define a ratio that represents the number of story points they can complete in one day. This ratio can then be used to calculate the number of person days of effort for a given piece of work.

Effort Ratio = Team Points Per Week (Velocity) ÷ 5 days ÷ Number of team members

Person Days (Effort) = Story Points * Effort Ratio

The Ask is to store this Effort Ratio at the Project or Team level, and then have the value be accessible to calculate Person Days on Story cards base on the Story points associated. 

Is there a way to store a variable at the Project/Team level that can be referenced in field logic at the card level?

Thank you in advance.
