Abstract
This work aims to support managers in their decision processes in IT projects in dynamic and contingently contexts. To do so, it discusses the influence that best management practices exercise in the performance of information quality in Information Technology (IT) projects, considering restricting conditions. The study is based on the Brazilian reality. Thus, we interviewed 303 specialists with knowledge and experience about the object of study. These specialists were selected by technical and scientifically criteria. The data was collected through a scale questionnaire (Likert), with some open questions.

The results we found are satisfactory and show that in restricting conditions, best management practices influence the performance of information quality in IT projects.
