To follow up on Greg's advice, as a producer, you really should be able to write up a short treatment and the first page of a script yourself. It's not brain surgery, it's basic communication. It's nothing more than telling/showing your client how you plan to meet their business needs with the video. The "idea" is the key, not your price. It's also the information you should be able to give to any writer you hire.

If you are too unsure of yourself, then hiring a writer is something that you should do and you should look at it as a business investment, not as throwing money away. And you don't need to have him/her do the whole script, just the treatment. Even if you don't win the contract, you'll have a treatment that you can use as a model moving forward with the next client.
