Workload: 70-115 hours per month.  AIR will contract directly with the independent consultants under a consulting purchase order agreement.   The Department of Defense (DoD) Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office (SAPRO) initially developed the DoD SPARX Knowledge training to build the capacity of the military’s prevention workforce to engage in primary prevention of sexual assault.
