If the provision 52.204-7 is in a solicitation, whether or not FAR provision 52.204-8 is used, would you exclude any of the applicable 34 reps and certs?
Asked differently, do you separately list the 34 reps and certs, when applicable, if 52.204-8 is not included in the solicitation?

Thank you for your question. I agree with the position you are taking. The prescription for FAR 52.204-7 is found at FAR 4.1105(a)(1) which is what you need to read to determine if the provision goes into your solicitation or not. As a result, like you, I don't think it is based on whether or not FAR 52.204-8 is in the solicitation or not. Therefore, as you alluded to in your background information, "when the provision at 52.204-7, System for Award Management, is included in the solicitation, [you] do not separately include the  representations and certifications [in the solicitation]."
