When the gravitational field and its fictitious partners are grouped into an OSp( 4 2) supermultiplet, an extended BRS invariance emerges. The action and BRS transformations (ordinary and dual) are written in supersymmetric form, and the extended gauge identities are deduced, in parallel with recent work on Yang-Mills theory.
