A measure aimed at improving the performance and efficiency of federal agencies is headed to the White House.

The legislation, co-sponsored by U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka of Hawaii, was contained in a larger House bill designed to update the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993.

The larger bill was passed Tuesday and sent to President Barack Obama.

Akaka's measure would call on agencies to identify overlapping federal programs and require more focused efforts to find potential taxpayer savings.

According to Akaka's office, each agency would be required to designate a chief operating and a performance improvement officer who would pursue cost-savings by improving coordination of duplicative programs.
