WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy announced Monday that it is asking for female Sailors to provide their opinion in an online female dress uniform and cover survey.

Approximately 8,000 randomly selected female officers and enlisted personnel from various commands across the Fleet were notified of their participation via their command triads and provided instructions on accessing and completing the survey. The online survey will be open for approximately 30 days.

This survey is designed to obtain women's preference in type and design of various uniforms and components. The Navy last conducted a female uniform survey in 2013.

Survey questions address the level of satisfaction with dress uniforms and covers for both officers and enlisted. Questions on the style and fit of service uniform items are also included.

The results of the female dress uniform and cover survey will be used to inform the Navy's way ahead on a number of uniform matters we know are of interest to female Sailors. Results will also be delivered to Congress to satisfy requirements of the Fiscal Year 2017 National Defense Authorization Act.
