Can Artificial Intelligence (AI) Be Used in Bid Writing?

Have you noticed the rise in Artificial Intelligence (AI) chatbots? Or perhaps you’ve seen some AI-generated images and wondered: can AI be used in bid writing?

Stick with us as we dive into Artificial Intelligence and how it could be beneficial, but also a hindrance, to the bid writing world.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence (AI), whilst not a new concept, is the ‘simulation of human intelligence processed by machines (computers)’.

AI has been around, formally, since the 1950s when it was defined as ‘a machine’s ability to perform a task that would’ve previously required human intelligence’.

AI Chatbots, such as ChatGPT, are currently popular across the world, with more developers creating them for big companies like Google, due to their ability to make activities easier for people to complete.

We’ve seen people use AI Chatbots for things such as CV writing, meal planning, and even creating recipes from a list of ingredients – the possibilities seem endless!

Can Artificial Intelligence Be Used in Bid Writing?

When it comes to simpler, more generic activities in bid writing, like creating executive summaries, then using AI could be a way forward to streamline that process and make it quicker and simpler for all involved.

However, it doesn’t just have to be the physical writing of the bid that AI can help with! Below, we’ve listed some other ways in which you could use Artificial Intelligence to help!

What are the Benefits of Using Artificial Intelligence in Bid Writing?

AI Could help to support organisations to tender more efficiently, potentially even more successfully!


By helping to reduce human error.

We know mistakes are part of life, but they could be the difference between winning and losing a bid. Even if you have multiple edits and proofreads of a bid before submitting it, there could still be a major error that has been missed.

So how exactly can AI help?

It can analyse the question and select the appropriate data to match the requirements set out in the documents, helping to reduce the risk of a writer misinterpreting a question, or failing to find the most relevant content within a bid library.

AI is also available 24/7 – enabling constant monitoring of ongoing bids and also alerting bid writers to any missing data.

With newer AI Technology having the ability to write human-like, you can use a chatbot programme to proofread responses for spelling/grammar mistakes too!

What are the Limitations of AI in Bid Writing?

Where the concept of AI might seem like an exciting and simple way of writing your bid responses, it’s not quite fully up to scratch for that level of writing yet!

Some limitations include:

Although evolving, there’s still a long way to go for Artificial Intelligence, so for now, we reckon human bid writers are here to stay!
