There are some points to notice in the dimensional reduction of off-shell supergravity. We discuss a consistent way of dimensional reduction of five-dimensional off-shell supergravity compactified on S1/Z2. There are two approaches to the four-dimensional effective action, which are complementary to each other. Their essential difference is the treatment of the compensator and the radion superfields. We explain these approaches in detail and examine their consistency. Comments on related works are also provided.
