Whether dealing with Public-Private Partnerships (PPP), or with other forms of service provision and delivery, public managers face difficulties in responding to ever-growing demands for more and better quality services. The question of how to do more, but without doing more of the same, can perhaps be answered partially through the use of some of the recently developed and innovative tools that build on Web 2.0 and by the application of Citizen Relationship Management. This article discusses a simple input-output Public-Private-Citizen Collaboration (PC2) framework which reflects the collaborative interactions through which public and private stakeholders can exchange and process information with citizens. The framework highlights the need for genuine involvement of the public and suggests that by utilising new Web 2.0-based tools citizens can participate both in the processes of creating and crafting web-based content and in enhancing service design. If used in relation to PPPs such tools may very well be able to help governments access much needed information so as to both better visualise and actualise public value in PPP-based service delivery. © 2010 The Authors Journal compilation © 2010 National Council of the Institute of Public Administration Australia.
