imageEffective in March 2010, the Illinois General Assembly enacted the Cemetery Oversight Act (COA) for protection of Illinois consumers. This act requires the development of a statewide database for all burials that occur in the state of Illinois. The database will be on the Internet, and cemeteries in Illinois will be required to enter all new interments into the database within 10 days after a burial occurs. We are proud to announce that Ramaker & Associates has been awarded the contract to develop this database! Brandon Finley, Vice President of Ramaker & Associates, said, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to be involved in this unique project, and to help the state of Illinois ensure that their records are accurate for years to come.”

Ramaker & Associates is currently working with the State of Illinois to define the scope and functionality of the system. Ramaker & Associates partnered with Yahara Software (http://www.yaharasoftware.com/), a Madison, Wisconsin-based software development firm, to help execute this project. Yahara has experience developing other web-based statewide databases and will be able to utilize those skills in this project.

The system is anticipated to “go live” and be available to all Illinois cemeteries on December 1, 2010.
