WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Names of Sailors selected to advance to chief petty officer by the fiscal year 2016 E-7 selection board are scheduled to be posted to commands' BUPERS Online (BOL) accounts Wednesday, Aug. 5, with public release via NAVADMIN Thursday, Aug. 6 at 11:00 a.m. eastern time.

Approximately 4,100 quotas were announced in June with an overall advancement opportunity of 23.64 percent for this cycle, just a .45 point drop from last cycle and above the 10-year average of 21.94 percent.

The selection board is not required to fill all quotas; only the best and most fully qualified candidates are selected for advancement to chief.

Because the Navy advances to vacancies, opportunity varies by rating, though advancement planners work to smooth overall opportunity across cycles.
