According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality." They "must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions augment routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or higher-value affairs as a method to assist in exposing valuation complications."
