This work is registered in two disciplinary axes that are the decision making system, and the practices of the IT GRC. Many organizations deployed integrated the practices of the IT GRC, the problem that arises it is how to choose the good one practices to satisfy a precise need. Our work is motivated by the need to make decisions by understanding and by incorporating perceptions, decisions and actions to make the best choice. The objective of the research is to build a decision-making model to satisfy a precise need IT. The proposed approach bases on three main stages to set up a decision-making model. The model takes in entrance the strategic needs, the first stage consists in reducing the size of the problem by dividing it into many problems, by basing itself on the mapping between all the reference tables and methods of the GRC and also this stage is going to allow us to assure the sequencing of these under problems according to the variables of the environment as for example the type of the organization. In the second stage, it is a question of formalizing every under problems according to the criteria stored in the datawarehouse to generate the best choice of the good practice by using methods of aggregation multi criterion to satisfy the need IT. The third stage consists in estimating the satisfaction IT and helps to make decisions at the level of every chosen reference table.
