Abstract
Abstract We consider a type of supersymmetry which is present in the Chern-Simons and BF-type topological field theories in terms of a superconnection formalism. The combined global supersymmetry and BRST symmetry are realized in this superspace when non-covariant constraints on the supercurvature are chosen. This construction extends naturally within the bundle of frames approach to superspace, and we present a formalism which may lead to the construction of vector supergravity theories and their coupling to the topological field theories considered here.
