Information Mining Projects provide synthesis and analysis tools which allow the available data of an organization to be transformed into useful knowledge for the decision-making process. It is for this reason that requirements of this type of project are different from requirements of traditional projects for software development. Consequently, processes associated with requirements engineering for this type of project cannot be reused in Information Mining projects. Likewise, available methodologies for these last projects leave aside activities associated with the Requirements Management of stakeholders and customers. In this context, a model giving solution to the necessities of managing project Information Mining requirements is offered.
