Reimbursable Services Program
RWA 2957 Form
The centerpiece of the Reimbursable Services Program is the Reimbursable Work Authorization (RWA) Form 2957. This form provides written documentation of a formal agreement between GSA and a customer whereby GSA agrees to provide goods and/or services and the customer agrees to reimburse GSA's direct and indirect costs.
In September 2016, a revised version of the RWA 2957 Form [PDF - 680 KB] was released. GSA will reject any RWA provided on any previous version of the form and request the agency re-submit their RWA on the 9/2016 version.
Note: Please ensure to download and save the form to your computer/device before using as the form is only compatible when opened directly in Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader software. The form will not work if using the Adobe Plug-in for Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or any other web browser.
