"I call upon all public servants to ensure that they celebrate this milestone by ensuring that no member of the public will come to any of our public institutions and go back without receiving help."
Sisulu added that in the New Year her department will continue putting measures in place to ensure a fully fledged school of government aimed at improving skills within the public service.
"We will also push for the passing of the PAM Bill in Parliament as we realise that in order to achieve the public service that we seek to create the bill is a necessary tool in helping us achieve our goals," she said.
Sisulu further called on members of the public to participate in the public hearings and ensure that their voice is heard.
Much was achieved through partnerships with various sectors of society on the objectives the department had set itself such as building a clean and accountable government and professionalisation of the public service amongst others.
"As part of the wage agreement reached in 2012, government together with labour signed the Service Charter aimed at improving services in the public service. "Furthermore to address issues of compliance within the public service we established the Office of Compliance and Standards, which is currently doing work in the Nort- SAnews.gov.zah West and Limpopo Provinces," she said.
The past year also saw the rolling out of E-disclosure system in partnership with the State Information Technology Agency across all national and provincial government departments.
The fight against corruption, she added, remained one of the greatest battles that government will continue being involved in until is completely eradicated.
Sisulu also commended public servants for the hard work that they are doing in various departments and institutions.
