According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." They "should also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some banks augment regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or larger-value dealings as a way to help in discovering valuation complications."
