The current context of the economic-social environment determines a multidimensional approach to performance in project management, taking into account the particularities of each stage of the life cycle. Stakeholders of the projects influence in a high proportion the performance of the projects through the interests, of the intervention force and of influence on the scope and the objectives set. In this paper, the influence of the stakeholders on the performance of the projects in the closing phase was analyzed, from the perspective of how an  influence on the impact and sustainability of the project can be exercised. The research results highlight the importance of establishing an integrated strategy for stakeholder approach, in accordance with the performance requirements imposed.
